  • Absolutely fantastic art museum in Zurich. Huge collections of Impressionist and modern art which are my personal favorite styles. They have several rotating exhibits which are worth visiting, but do not miss the permanent collections either! Highly recommend this museum, I would come back next time I am in town. Easy to spend 2-3 hours or more there.
  • Massive collection of enormous cultural influence and value. Impressionist and post-impressionist galore. Elegant museum building with lots of air and light. I visited Kunsthaus over the weekend, and was pleasantly surprised that it was not crowded. According to Kunsthaus website, on Wednesdays admission is free. Visit to the Kunsthaus makes for a delightful day to remember and cherish. To everyone at Kunsthaus: thank you!
