The Rietberg Museum

Multiculturalism takes precedence

Have you ever imagined seeing works of art that define all cultures in the world under the same roof? In that case, your dreams have just come true: the Rietberg Museum houses an extremely interesting permanent exhibition, where you will have the opportunity to see attractive works of Asian, African, American, and Oceanian origin, and many of which have great historic value. Inaugurated in the year 1952, and located in a beautiful 19th-century mansion, inside this building you'll find important pieces of pre-Columbian art, Hindu and Buddhist effigies, archaeological ruins, and especially an impressive collection of Asian pieces that date as far back as the 2nd and 3rd centuries B.C. Little wonder that the exhibition of Japanese relics is one of the most important in the world. This is a real must-visit during your tour of Zurich. In 2007, another neighbouring building named Smaragd was inaugurated which houses new collections, and is characterised by its remarkable glass design.
