I'm not sure I'd call this a museum. Not a lot of art, the layout was confusing, and we kept getting conflicting information about pricing for exhibits.

I love art museums and Kunsthalle Zurich is definitely worth a visit if you are in Zurich. The museum is more interesting on the iside that the outside so do not judge it by the skin. There are different exhibitions and there are also galleries in the building, and the area is very interesting.

This venue is home to a great selection of galleries at two museums, a dream come true for any contemporary art lover. Groundbreaking shows and cool bookshops complete the picture. I enjoyed it a lot and wish there were more places like this around Europe.

Although it is not much trouble to reach the Kunsthalle, by tram from the center of the city, for us it was a very disappointing experience. In a very big building the entrance of the Kunsthalle is hardly indicated, you can reach it by a construction elevator .There are several activities in this building. Arrived there you see wide high... More

Appart from the fact that it is very expensive (12 chf) for such a small museum (2 rooms with 5 artwork each). We had the joy to look at 3 photos of electric plug, some carpets and a coat-hanger. For the next visitors, focus rather on the Pictet award exhibition which is free, with much more to see and full... More

I suppose it depends on what the current exhibitions are, but what I saw was worthless. The private galleries in the same building had some interesting stuff, though.

It's a really nice place to visit if you like contemporary art. The curator did a great job on the display, everything flows perfectly. On Thursday the entrance is free from 17:00-20:00,so if you are in Zurich and have time to enjoy art, this is a place worth visiting.

Great art book shop, superb mix of galleries on three floors, cool(ing) architecture, in fun quartier of Zurich. The Ragnar Kjartansson video installation in the Migros Museum part of Kunsthalle was mind-blowing.

Worst kind of contemporary art. That's not an objective statement; you should go and judge for yourself, but I couldn't stand to look at it.
