The Rietberg Museum is a museum in Zurich, Switzerland, displaying Asian, African, American and Oceanian art. The Rietberg
Museum is situated in the 17 acre Rieterpark in central Zurich and consists of several historic buildings. The Wesendonck Villa, the Remise, the Rieter Park-Villa and the Schönberg Villa. In 2007 a new building designed by Alfred Grazioli and Adolf Krischanitz was opened. Unlike the museum’s historic other buildings, this new building, “The Smaragd“, is a large subterranean building, doubling the museum’s exhibition space.
I had some spare time on my last day in Zurich so I decided to go up the hills of Rietberg Park to visit the museum, of which entrance is free (I love free).
The Rietberg Museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10AM to 5PM and on Wednesday and Thursday from 10AM to 8PM; Sunday the museum opens from 10AM to 4PM (Mondays closed).
