We managed to get into the Buhrle mansion during one of its last one-day-per-month open houses. Reservations were absolutely necessary and each group that went through was packed. Artwork ranged from "old master" through Canaletto to impressionists. In preview of the plan to show the collection worldwide until the new wing of the Kunst Museum in Zurich is finished being...

Been keen on visiting the collection in its original house for a long time. However, have missed several times the 1st Sunday of the month deadlines. Now, looking at the Collection's website, found out unfortunately that it is closed for good until the opening of a special wing at Kunsthaus, Zurich to accommodate the collection as of 2020.

To art lover's this is a MUST see! Beautiful impressionist paintings. Check out the incredible, "Monet's Garden". One room lost a few paintings, since, I've been there. A huge robbery took place there a few yrs back. 2 of the 4 bigtime paintings were recovered. One of the greatest paintings at that museum, Cezanne's, "Boy in the Red Vest", looks... More
