The organization

The Kunsthaus Zürich enjoys international renown. Its patron association, the Zürcher Kunstgesellschaft, ensures that art is collected and exhibited in Zurich. Today it is one of the largest art associations in Europe. Its board includes representatives of the private and public sectors.

A house with history

The Zürcher Kunstgesellschaft’s first museum building was constructed on Heimplatz in 1910. From the outset, it was designed not just as a museum or art gallery but as a combination of the two, with temporary exhibitions and its own collection. Learn more about the journey from the Künstlergüetli to a museum for the 21st century.

The new Kunsthaus

The extended Kunsthaus is a gateway to the world of art, in all its rich and varied forms. It reflects and shapes contemporary trends and builds on the existing strengths of its collection. When the new extension joins the existing Kunsthaus building in 2020, it will create Switzerland’s largest art museum.
