Excellent architecture juxtaposing old and new, interesting collection of works by artists either working in or from the region (Kirchner, Giacometti). Significant temporary exhibitions. Worth a trip, together with the Old City next door.
Very nice regional art museum combining classic with new buildings.
The building of the old museum is the former villa Planta (1875) which was reconstructed in 1990. Chur was the birthplace of Angelica Kauffman (neoclassicism of the end of 18th century). Most interesting portrait of Louise Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun - the French artist of the period.
