Amazed at what there was to see
Apr 2021
For living in the city, this was only the second time I'd been to the Kunsthaus. Discovered many works by Swiss artists, but also Swiss artists I didn't know.
Currently, you can visit the still empty new building, with an installation by William Forsythe, 8 former church bells sound the otherwise empty rooms. The extension of the Kunsthaus is a success. I look forward to the exhibitions in the generously sized rooms. The new building will be opened as part of the museum in autumn 2021.

Superb museum

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.

Beyond our expectations!
Feb 2020
We were very impressed by the permanent collection of masters including Picasso, Monet and Van Gogh, as well as the temporary exhibition by Olafur Eliasson. This Icelandic artist created an extremely memorable interactive exhibition with lasers, smoke and prisms. Entering the smoke and laser exhibit felt like you were underwater. The artist's goal to influence people's attitude towards climate change through art was brilliantly executed ! This art museum was a highlight of Zurich.

Jewel of a museum

This time we only visited the Olafur Eliasson show. Superb. In the past we have visited the rich permanent collections many times. The special exhibits are always strongly curated and elaborate it mounted.

Visit Olafur Eliasson playing with light
Mar 2020
Till 22-03 2020 Olafur’s displays with light, smoke and prisma’s can make you wonder how we observe light and movement.
Nice exhibition.

Best to buy a ticket for the entire museum, exhibition is a little short.

Fantastic permanent collection! 🎨
Feb 2020 • Business
I was not particularly impressed by the slightly messy exhibition by Olafur Eliasson, while the Ottilia Giacometti exhibition was fantastic! The permanent exhibition is also really impressive, and I can very highly recommend this museum despite it’s high admission fee.

Well laid out, spacey museum with a good collection, particularly of the impressionists. Pity no guided tour in English

This is one of the best art museums I've been to, on par with the MOMA in New York. We easily spent half a day here, there's so much to see, from Rembrandt to Picasso, this is an amazing collection.

World Class Collection
Jan 2020
This museum has a great collection. As well as having a good survey of western art, it has in depth collections of Munch, Alberto Giacometti and the Giacometti family, and of Swiss artists. Especially noticeable were the works of Ferdinand Hodler. There is a very nice Monet Water Lilies. A great museum to visit.
