Nice gallery, worth the visit. We got a special rate allowing us to visit the temporary and permanent collections for the price of one. The children were also free. A good multi-lingual audio guide. A limited but interesting collection of modern art.

The Kunsthaus is located in the Center of Zurich, easily reachable. Do no worry about the ongoing works that aim to enlarge the location. The Museum is very well organized and offers a great displlay of art masterpieces in the Sammlung beyond excellent temporary exibitions. In this case, the price is really worth the visit. Not to be missed.

A wonderful art museum. Water lillies made my day but top of the pops was van Gogh. What a little gem. The building though is as much of a work of art as the art itself. Just beautiful

A great selection of art. If you like the French impressionist they have a great collection. They also have an extensive collection of religious art.
