In contrast to some other modern art museums I have visited which tended to leave dark and depressing impressions, the Haus Konstruktiv has a more simple, abstract, and peaceful exhibit. I visited on a weekday afternoon, with probably only half-a-dozen other visitors in the 4-storey museum. Many times I was alone to explore both the paintings as well as installations.... More

the structure of the museum is nice but the exposition is difficult to follow. I really did not undestand the beauty of it.

Haus Konstruktiv seems to have a very interesting and pertinent collection and temporary exhibitions. I totally fell in love with Jochem Hendricks' show "Visionary Collection, Vol. 18" and also enjoyed most of the other works exhibited. Friendly personnel, free lockers and nice documentation center at the last floor.

Very interesting collection of an art style that is essentially Zurich. The permanent collection contains a small diverse collection containing examples of constructive art. The central piece for me was the Rockefeller dining room designed by Fritz Glarner. It was moved here after the home of Nelson Rockefeller in New York was sold- worth seeing if you like modern/abstract art.... More
