  • I can't explain what a special experience this is. A big and very impressive collection of art to rival most other cities - but without the crowds. I spent a whole day there, and I'd love to go back for more! What an incredible collection of Alberto Giacometti! My highlight was the glass/light/sound room. ❤️
  • Fabulous collection! We reached after lunch, didn’t get enough time to visit all the exhibits. Need good number of hours here to explore it all. ‘Take care: art and medicine’ exhibit was amazing! A must visit when in Zurich.
