The Kunsthaus Zurich houses a standout amongst the most vital craftsmanship accumulations in Switzerland and Europe, gathered throughout the years by the neighborhood craft cooperation called Zurcher Kunstgesellschaft. The accumulation compasses from the Middle Ages to contemporary craft, with a stress on Swiss symbolization. The historical center was drawn-up by engineers Karl Moser and Robert Curjel, and opened in 1910. The display center's gathering incorporates works from Edvard Munch, Jacques Lipchitz and Alberto Giacom. This art museum is one that has one of the best collections in all of Europe and should certainly be a part of the itinerary of all tourists who visit Zurich.

Kunsthaus, Zurich Reviews - Write a Review
It had a good sprinkle of the big names in modern art. But the collection was not that large. The audio guide was free though and had a thorough lecture on Modern Art. If you have a lot of time and want to learn about Modern Art and its history, I would suggest doing the audio guide on a lazy afternoon. But if you are just visiting Zurich for a short amount of time, I would skip this museum. They do have a fun cafe / food establishment right next to the building with cozy sitting areas.
What little I saw was good. There is a nice collection for the size of the museum, but I ultimately left because this art museum is not toddler-friendly. No stroller, no food, no water allowed in the exhibits. Fine, I can kind of understand the food and water, but then they told me that my son’s toy car was not allowed because it had corners?! It’s already annoying enough to have to go out of the exhibits to get my son a drink of water. On my way out, I saw a museum staff member explaining to another mom with a toddler that maybe she should put her child in a stroller because she was lying on the ground; there was plenty of space and she wasn’t disturbing anyone. To which the mom replied “But you said it wasn’t allowed...” I used to live in New York and regularly visited the many art museums there with my kid in a stroller with his snacks and no one said anything about it. It was a nice thing to do on rainy days, but I guess I won’t be doing that here, which is really too bad.
Amazing gallery! Make sure you follow the map to ensure you don't miss any rooms out- I nearly missed the room with Picasso and Kandinsky in! Really interesting and really well priced. Not too many people in either. If I am lucky enough to be in Zürich again I will certainly visit again. Art from many eras; something to please everyone. Loved it.
This museum has a little of everything. But impressive on paintings between 1650 and late 1800's. Too bad there's no cafeteria inside. The restaurant is apart from the museum and just too fancy for a short break.
Really lovely place, the art work was amazing of the old masters. Easy to get to if you are visiting the Grossmünster which is nearby.
