My wife and I were thrilled to see the excellent art exhibition "Ernst Ludwig Kirchner - The Berlin years" which will be around until May 7th 2017. The admission fee is pretty high (CHF 23) but you will enjoy the many lovely art works by this amazing artist. We also bought the very good catalogue of the exhibition as well... More

this museum is a museum I do like, always something peculiar to see and unexpected. Then, it's not that huge so 1 or 2 hours is diong the job quite well.

It's not a big museum, so I was surprised to see so many great paintings. I liked the impressionist exhibition the most.

A wide collection of artists: Chagall, Picasso, Van Gogh, Andy Wharrol... All the art you can ask for, it's here! Room by room, you go through the history of Art, and the price was quite fair. I've found a little bit evasive, that the artists' works were not together, you could find a work of Chagall in a room and... More

Wide ranging collection from Medieval to Contemporary art: mostly paintings with a bit of sculpture. The collection isn't particularly deep in any one era, but the small size lets the visitor range pleasurably through the centuries. There are some very nice late 19th -early 20th Academy style paintings. Well worth a visit.

It was a walk with a friend from Portugal from Elisabethenkirche to Kunstmuseum . This walk is definitely something that all visitors of Basel should do. And in the museum you get to see all the big artists. Picasso, chagal, Rembrandt, Monet, van Gogh....you name it.

I visited Zurich Art Museum on a rainy day just 2 hrs before closing. The timing was just perfect. It is a very small museum with 2 floors, yet with a beautiful collection of different artists and different art movements. I enjoyed the Picasso and Van Gogh, but the modern part of the museum was very well organised and presented.

The museum was a wonderful surprise for me . The rich collection makes it a must see . I get to know artists and paintings I have never heard of and found paintings I did not know exist. This made my visit pleasant and educational alike . It is beautiful and relax place.

A great place to spend a few hours in Zurich with a rich and diverse collection of artists and art works. I visited in January which is obviously not a peak month and the gallery was certainly not too crowded. The 16 Euro entrance fee seemed reasonable for such a top class collection and I look forward to re-visiting in... More
