I went to the Kunsthaus on a Wednesday, when admission is free. I initially thought this might be a bad idea, as it would be filled to capacity. Although there were many people in the museum, it was never overcrowded. It was easy to walk through the galleries, sit on a bench and admire the art. No waiting to get... More

A unique experience, a look into culture and art tradition of Zurich, includes many international artists, from Monet and Picasso to Pop art and Andy Warhol. The temporary exhibition of Giacometti's sculptures was one of a kind! Its free with the Zurich pass.

The Kunsthaus has a lot to offer. There is a great variety of paintings and the audioguide will enable those who aren't experts to understand a selection of paintings. Little tip: if you want to be amazed read about some of the paintings before going there and enjoy a specific section of the museum; it is huge and you might... More

Visiting Zurich for 3 days, got myself the 72-hour transit pass, which includes admission to many of the city's museums. The Kunsthaus was top of my list ... I've now been there two days in a row, for several hours each day, and I'm still not done. I'm awed at the sheer variety of artists represented ... the Impressionists, pop-art... More

While I lived in Zurich, I was a member of the Kunsthaus. This allowed me to come and go whenever I wanted. And it was well worth it. For moments where I needed to ponder about things, I would go to one of the remote rooms of the museum, sit in one of the comfortable chairs and ponder. The great... More

I loved the pieces in there as I'm a huge of of European and renaissance at but it's a small venue and really for the art enthusiasts. It's a located very central so there's also plenty to explore outside it as well. The museum is free on Wednesday so it's a great way to check it out for free but... More

I had the chance to visit this museum for free as part of a private talk given by an art historian who took us through this breathtaking collection in an entertaining and educational way. The span of works housed in this museum is amazing, so many great names - modern and old masters - and some very famous works displayed... More

Though not much of Monet and Picasso , but the other master pieces were also worth to see. I loved the museum

I thought the museum was above average but not at the top. I've been to better but it definitely was a good visit. Lots of famous pieces. Fairly well laid out. Not overly expensive. If it's cold and wet worth the trip.
