Very interesting art museum. There are both classical works and modern art. The museum is very well arranged and I think it is the most interesting in Zurich. more »
There are various high-quality collections. You can find many paintings and sculptures from middle-age to modern era. Especially, Augusto Giacometti collection is one of the best. Moreover, there are numerous modern arts of Mondrien, Miro, and Magritte.
Visited on a Saturday and turned out to be free entry for all the exhibitions. Saw amazing work and had a fantastic time. The building is bright and spacious.
