I have been at the Rietberg several times now, and it's definitely my favorite museum in Zurich. While the entrance ticket is not the cheapest, it's definitely worth it. The sheer amount of pieces in the permanent collection will keep you busy for several hours, and the special exhibitions are always well done, in a thoughtful and respectful way.

If you have time, get one of the audioguides... you will learn so much about cultures, artifacts and customs of the other Continents!

The museum is huge that's why it makes it kind of confusing walking through.
The English descriptions aren't as detailed as the German ones. Also there aren't many historical facts in the descriptions

Interesting however they have no free entrance on Wednesday. There are some spectacular pieces that attract attention.

The Museum Rietberg is easy to get to by Zurich Tram. We got off the Green Line here on our way back from seeing Dolder Grand Hotel. Be sure to see the awesome Rodin Gate next to the entrance here.

Most stores in Zurich are closed on Sundays, so my husband and I planned a visit to the Museum Reitberg in the afternoon. There are several different ticket types that are sold depending on whether you want to view just the main collection or special exhibits too. We chose the standard admission which was CHF 14/pp. Upon paying, we were required to store our bags in the nearby lockers (for free). The collection of art and archaeology was very extensive with pieces dating as far back as 7,000 years ago all the way up to more recently! We liked how the museum was laid out and the fact that each piece was individually labeled and dated within the case, but brochures were available in each section which went into much more depth if you were interested. We really liked the "visible storage" room which was like entering a fantastic attic full of wonders all over the world. We spent about two hours browsing the collection and would recommend this museum while in Zurich!

The museum itself is wonderful, as well as the garden surrounding it! I especially recommend a visit if you are looking for a break from the usual crowded tourist spots of Zürich.

Beautifully situated in a park, the museum has a very worthwhile collection. The villa itself is of historical importance as the Wesendonck Villa where Wagner stayed.

We went to see the temporary Mirrors exhibition here on a rainy Sunday. Cost is 25 CHF per adult .The free booklet you can pick up in at least German and English languages explains some of the displays in more detail. Fascinating exhibits from all around the world from 800BC up to the 21st century. The price also includes the normal collection as well.

Great museum and outstanding exhibit. It is both easy to visit and a great place to take time and enjoy the surroundings. For the mirror exhibit you need to speak German or take a tour

After going to the national museum I think this one is better. So many pieces to view and they even let you into the storage area. The special exhibit mirrors was interesting and easy to follow even in English with the provided guidebook. The entrance fee of 25 CHF is standard for Switzerland. Come visit and enjoy this contemporary museum.
