В музее всего три сектора с относительно бедными экспозициями, но по высокой, даже для Швейцарии, цене. more »The museum has only three sectors with relatively poor exhibits, but at a high price, even for Switzerland.

And many other masters from the 1400s to the present day. A drunkenness of masterpieces to see and review to make sure they are true.
Fabulous gallery with interesting exhibitions going on all the time. They are in the middle of some construction work as they are in the process of building the new extension building across the road but it doesn't hinder your visit at all in my opinion. There is a very nice gift shop with very interesting tidbits, hot tip for people on the hunt for a nice souvenir or gift. The Kunsthaus organizes tours. There are even courses for children during the holidays. An inspiring place and a must visit if you have the time and are in Zurich.
Very cool. They let my grandma and me go in very cheap because I'm a student and she's a senior. Such amazing and famous artwork. Great experience. Ranged from modern art to Van Gogh.
