Good place - walk up from the old tow - its really not that far. Spacious place with all sorts of fascinating exhibits. Easy to get round. Outside as you go - look up to see the giant Calder mobile, just hanging there - wonderful. excellent coffee shop and restaurant too. Not so large that you feel overwhelmed.

We were there specially for the Inspiration of Japan exhibition which was excellent. there was so much to see that we didn't have time to see everything as we had to travel back the same day. We hope to back again.

I went to the Kunsthaus just for an expo on Schiele & Saville, which was impressive. I had to get back to Geneva in time, so I could not visit the Kunsthaus colelction thouroughly, but I saw sufficient art to be eager to get back with more time for the permanent collection. Good book and gift shop.

Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso and other famous artist have their paintings here. The price to visit the museum worth it, if you want to visit the whole museum, you will need time, but if you want time for other activities on the city, buy the tickets for the exhibition, the museum always have interesting art exhibition.

The collection is great, and there are very few visitors - particularly on sunny days. Skip the restaurant - the service is awful.
