I've been to many art galleries around the world, and the really big ones leave a lot to be desired because there are too many people, or ropes or other devices that keep you from really looking at the paintings. Not so in Zurich's Kunsthaus. You can walk up to them a nose away, examine the paint and brushstrokes, even... More

One of our grand- grandfathers had moved to Zurich and established in about 1870 (!!) the Swiss part of our family; some members of our family have lived in Germany, some in North America (new England States, and Florida) and some members of our family emigrated to South Africa, to Australia, to Far East (Singapore, Hongkong), to U.K. etc. That's...

A wonderful ambience, the find for me was the Monet room, breathtaking. I also enjoyed the architectural theme that was running through the exits when we were there. Well worth the visit.

A small museum by comparison to major ones, but with many of the same notable artists and with special exhibits. There is a small cafe for refreshment and lockers to store your coats etc. Pictures are allowed. A quick walk through took us 2 hours, then we spent another hour focusing on rooms we found interesting.

We spent our time in the more modern section and they had a great display of traditional modern art. Very good place and one that worked well for our whole family

Surprised at how good this was. Impressive impressionist collection with the odd other stellar piece. Highlights - Munch, Chagall, Picasso, Van Gogh & Franz Hals.

Me and my boyfriend visited today. Although I enjoy visiting galleries, my boyfriend is not too keen but was lured in by my enthusiasm and mentioning of Van Gogh and Picasso. We paid only 10 CHF to get in because of our Zurich Cards (which I would highly recommend getting) and then took out two audio guides for free. I... More

I visited the permanent collection only, but was inspired by the sheer amount of world class artists and their works. The still lifes (classical, impressionist, and modern) were stunning.
