Museum Zurich: Which are the most popular museums in Zurich?

The city of Zurich is known for its artworks, cultural history and diversity of museums and art exhibitions. The top museums in Zurich impress with their architecture and design and appeal to different interests. Those who love art and culture will definitely feel at home in the city. Of even greater interest is that the city itself has a long tradition, which is also reflected in every detail. Thus, over 1000 works and sculptures can be found in the city (outside of museums)

We offer the perfect accommodation to start your museum tour in one of our popular B&B HOTELS in Zurich. Starting at this location, you have the possibility to explore the sights by public transport (called the "tram").



The diversity of art: from science to non-European cultures

The University of Zurich offers several museums and collections that are open to all. The Zoological Museum, the Archaeological Collection and the Museum of Anthropology are just a few of the many cultural facilities that are part of the university and can be visited. 

You can also visit one of the largest sports museums in Europe: Fifa World Football Museum. This is where you can experience large parts of football history, the most important matches and events in football history.

In addition, there is another unusual top museum in Zurich, the Saurier-Museum-Aathal. This museum houses (extinct) flying dinosaurs and extinct creatures, making it a great destination for curious parents and children on a family day out (family highlight).

From our well-located B&B HOTEL Zurich East Wallisellen, you can easily visit the city's art history by public transport.


Culture in Zurich: A wide range of classical art and modern museums

In the Museum Rietberg you will find a rare Africa exhibition, which displays over 2400 works of art and objects and tells of over 600 years of history. The Rietberg Museum's programme is very diverse and a visit there means discovering exceptional art and many different artists from all over the world (the popular, accessible park villa rieter is also located here).

At the Kunsthaus Zürich you can take part in a tour that introduces you to the story of various sciences. The "Kunsthaus" is ideal for a visit as a family and is a unique location and at the same time a showcase for Zurich's art (like Picasso, Monet, Chagall, Beckmann, Kokoschka & Corinth).

Visiting focusTerra gives you an insight into planetary and earth sciences and features interesting long-term exhibitions in the field of earth-evolution. Here you will also find great " extensions" such as artist talks and workshops in which you can participate.

Ideally, you start your trip at our modern B&B HOTEL Zurich Airport Rumlang. Since there are so many things to do in Zurich, it's best to plan your sightseeing ahead of time. You can find tourist information on many corners if you ever need help.
