We only had a quick visit, but glad we saw it. A real perk was it's free entry on Wednesdays and it was open so late. Not a long walk to get to from Zurich BH but there was a tram that stopped right outside.

Excellent design and offers a very extensive choice of expositions. I saw many school groups wandering with teachers. Worth the visit. Better for children under 14 in my opinion
