Art Museums of Switzerland.
Switzerland is a paradise for art lovers. World-renowned art can be found here in a very compact space. The Art Museums of Switzerland are the finest example. The association of Switzerland’s major museums of art, design and photography invites visitors to partake in a relaxed and uncomplicated cultural experience – in architecturally fascinating buildings and right up close to nature. So it’s worth exploring not only Switzerland’s unparalled landscapes and culinary specialities, but its unique museum diversity as well. I wish you many surprising and inspiring experiences at the Art Museums of Switzerland.
