    The Max Ernst exhibition is a must see. A great museum with a fantastic atmosphere surrounded by a beautiful garden. The building itself, by Renzo Piano, is a pearl of architecture. Definitely a must

    A Renzo Piano masterpiece with beautiful zen gardens & interior illumination that changes from sunrise to sunset.The temporary exhibitions are 1st class & more than make up for the small permanent one

    Entry is pricey at CHF 25 for adults, but exhibitions are always fantastic, and the surrounding gardens energizing and relaxing. Permanent collection is worth it, special ones always surprise!

    It is simply unbelievable how Piano was able to design and related everything with natural lights, choise challenging and difficult for an Art Museum.Walking inside and outside feelings are wonderful.

    „Klein aber fein“ - it’s small but has great exhibitions. It can get very crowded though so brace yourself.

    The big changing exhibitions are phenomenal! But if you don't like the currently featured artist, stay away, since these exhibitions take up more then half of the museum.

    The Vitra House is just a short taxi ride away. Hop over from the Foundation for about 11 euro.

    Wer nach der Ausstellung Hunger oder Durst hat, geht rüber zum Berower Gut im Park. Mediterrane Küche, saisonale à la carte Gerichte + verschiedene Tagesteller. Achtung: Öffnungszeiten wie das Museum!

    В коллекции этого небольшого, но приятного во всех отношениях музея вездесущий Пикассо, Матис и Монэ. Находится за городом, куда с комфортом до самых дверей доставит 6 трамвай минут за 20.

    Y aller en automne c'est magique et laisse place à encore plus de réflexion, de méditation et d'admiration devant les beaux arbres (beaux-arts!?) du Parc.

    Magnifique exposition Gauguin, dommage que le musée soit par ailleurs fermé pour le montage d'une exposition temporaire... Il faudra revenir.

    Schon etwas komisch, dass „ein paar Räume geschlossen“ bedeutet, dass die *gesamte* Sammlung „dicht“ ist und ausschließlich sie Sonderausstellung zu besuchen ist. Ticketpreis nicht reduziert.
