“Absolutely amazing collection of art from around the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

This collection focusses on art from countries in Asia and Africa but also includes sculptures and statues from many other places. There is a massive range of stuff to see and there's also a really nice café to sustain you while you're there!
The "visible storage" section is basically a store room with rows and rows of glass cabinets containing art for which there isn't space in the main museum. It's actually quite well laid out and just adds to the quality of the collection.
I can't recommend it enough - it's one of the most fascinating places I've ever visited and it's free with Zurich card.

“Unique bringing together of cultures.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

I liked the order the collection was arranged in. One strolls seeminglessly from one time period and culture to the next.
