“Place to see pre- and post-19th century art”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Though I am not art student or aficionado, this place still managed to keep me interested. The name "Museum of Modern Art" seemed a bit of a misnomer, as I also found many beautiful paintings and artwork from before 19th century.
The 'actual' modern art collection included big names like Andy Warhol and Munch. But the pieces that really caught my eye were a sculpture made of dice (yeah those used for gambling :) ) and an almost photograph-quality portrait of a young woman. We even had a good fortune of seeing Chagal's work!
Great place to enjoy artwork, even if you don't understand much of it :).

“nice collection”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

The highlight was the special exhibition of works by Munch (who apparently had a Zurich connection), but the permanent collection is quite good too

“Art Museum is Amazing”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Beautiful art in this museum. It was amazing! The art in Zurich is very beautiful - you see the Bavarian influences. Great if you have the Zurich pass. It is great to go to all the other museums at the same time, a rich culminated story of vibrant art, culture and history will leave you bewildered.
