Museums for Art Lovers in Zurich

Kunsthaus Zurich’s major modern art collection, the Löwenbräu Areal’s contemporary masterpieces and Museum Rietberg’s collection of non-European art – Zurich offers a wide range of museums that art lovers simply should not miss.

Many of the museums are dedicated to a very specific genre: MuDA in Zurich West exclusively exhibits digital art, Musée Visionnaire is committed to Art Brut, and the Museum Haus Konstruktiv is Switzerland’s leading institution for constructivist-concrete and conceptual art.

The greater Zurich region also offers many major museums to explore: Winterthur’s Center for Photography exhibits interesting photography from different eras and Museum Langmatt’s collection includes impressive pieces of classical modern art by artists such as Cezanne and Monet.

The Kunsthaus Zurich is a must for all art enthusiasts with one of the most important modern art collections in Zurich.
