Welcome to the newly refurbished main building of the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich on Ausstellungsstrasse! Experience Swiss design in the heart of Zürich. The museum’s listed building is one of the outstanding examples of Swiss modernist architecture. In its unique ambiance, the museum presents the treasures of its internationally acclaimed collection and exhibitions on changing themes. The new Swiss Design Lounge invites visitors to linger and try out contemporary Swiss furniture. Young and old can look forward to an inspiring experience — whether creatively in our education studio or convivially in the museum café and in the adjacent park. The museum shop offers a wide range of selected design souvenirs.
