The museum is located in a lovely park next to a beautiful old mansion which includes the museums bistro. Most of the exhibition spaces are actually... More

A jewel in the Zurich museum landscape in a generous park with precious old trees where it is also allowed to have picknick with the food from the museum cafe - where you even can get a basket and a plaid! The shows are very carefully arranged with great sensibility for the object of the show and subtle aesthetic sense.... More

For all connoisseurs/lovers of East Asian art it's the best place to visit. and as all exponates can't be places for visitors due to large number of collection, there are storage place too in museum where are assembled many other amazingly interesting pieces of art. In front of Museum there is a compound Villa Wesendonck where are assambled American, African... More

Museum Rietberg has one of the largest collections of asian art that I have seen. They regularly have special shows which are excellently curated and well documented. Set in a pretty park with old trees, it is definetly worth a visit.

A place to visit again and again. You get bored. The small bistro with local, organic foods is delightful. The traditional Japanese Tea Ceremonial is a one in the life time experience. Booking in advance ( over the website ) is recommend !

We weren't in the mood for seeing antiquities when it was such nice weather. The grounds are great for strolling (although a bit hilly) and down by the lake is the fascinating collection of cacti, if you're into that sort of thing.

The Rietberg museum is one of my favorite places to visit in Zürich. The exhibitions are always top notch and the permanent collection is interesting enough to look at. I could just spend hours in the book shop and I WANT to buy everything. Of course, in the warmer months it is better to visit as it is surrounded by... More

An outstanding museum of several collections. With one exception, Gardens of the World, non-flash photography is permitted. Pamphlets in English are available. The vast collection is displayed in several buildings on the campus, and there is coffee shop and gift shop (of course). Focusing your time on specific areas of interest, will enable the visitor to see what's really relevant... More

Yawn..CHF18.00 to look at an exhibition is a ripoff. Save your money and enjoy the nice park landscape for free. Don't bother with the restaurant, see for yourself in the attached photo what it costs

Hidden in a parc, near translation Zurich-Engi, is a real treasure: You walk up a few steps and will find even for Wagner Fans Villa Wesendonck and right beneath the museum.take your time and stroll around. The exposition part changes and it is very inspirational for artists, scientist and cultural interested people.
