  • Worth spending an hour or two here especially if it is pouring with rain outside! Interesting pieces by some well known artists.

  • Small yet exquisite collection of modern art. We fled from the heat into this lovely museum and ended up 90mins enjoying the art. Great audio guides available and included in the 18.- CHF entrance fee.
  • Very intriguing building, definitely worth looking at - inside an eclectic collection of expensive art pieces bought by a wealthy couple, some nice, but no apparent curation. Changing exhibition, the foundation seems to support local artists (which is admirable) 18CHF for a ticket is at least double than what it's worth, therefore 3 stars, as value for money in Switzerland is obviously an issue...
