Museum Rietberg – Foreign Cultures Abound in Zurich's Most Beautiful Park

The Museum Rietberg presents a unique collection of non-European art and cult objects.

The Museum Rietberg invites visitors on a trip around the world. The treasures discovered here range from enchanting sculptures from Africa to Buddhist art from Asia and cult objects from the South Sea and America. A collection of intricately carved Swiss masks can also be seen.

In addition to the collection, fascinating temporary exhibitions can be viewed, most of which illuminate a particular culture or part of the world.
The museum was extended in 2007 – and the "Smaragd" (emerald) entrance, named after its greenish-blue glass is yet another magnificent feature. Picnic baskets that tempt you to spend a leisurely afternoon in the park are also available from the Museum Café in summer.
