Great museum
So many masterpieces (Monet, Van Gogh, SIgnac..)
It would need to be refurbished a bit but this was a great surprise to find this quality of paintings

The collection at this museum was diverse and interesting, but admission was very high. We went for the lead exhibit, which was priced separately and then added in the rest of the museum.

Excellent guide, wonderful gallery etc. we saw Giacometti exhibition which was informative as we knew little about him. Also saw some of the impressionists beautifully laid out.

As a non museum guy, I was not particularly excited to be heading towards the Kunsthaus. However, I was pleasantly surprised from the moment I walked in. Unlike the chaotic lines and hours of waiting for the Parisian equivalents, the museum was quiet, with no lines and had a fantastic collection of big name artists. Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet are relatively well known, even for non art lovers and the museum has many. It is well laid out, you can zip around in just around an hour, and even better, it is completely free on Wednesdays! I would recommend a visit here, even if art is not your thing.

The Kunsthaus is located in an odd assembly of buildings where the architects (from very different periods) suffered the same flaw: advancing their art at the expense of that which was to be displayed. The collection is fine and encyclopedic, but without as many of the outstanding examples as I expected from the "leading" collection in Switzerland. Also, while a good introduction to Swiss art from the XIXth century on, it does not do a particularly good job with Swiss art from earlier periods. (I can't believe the pickings are as slim as the Kunsthaus selection would suggest.). The audio guide is good and available in English. There appears to be no published guide currently available and relatively little in any language on Swiss art before the XXth century.
