Museum für Gestaltung Zürich

The Museum für Gestaltung Zürich is the leading Swiss museum for design and visual communication and has two locations in the city of Zürich - on the exhibition street and in the Toni area. It also operates the Le Corbusier Pavilion in Zurich's Seefeld on behalf of the City of Zurich. With its exhibition program, its educational activities and international travelling exhibitions, the museum are geared towards a wide audience. The content includes an equally broad spectrum of topics and monographic positions from the areas of industrial and product design, graphics, typography, and photography, Poster, film, furniture, fashion, jewellery, applied arts, architecture and scenography. The four collections of the museum - design, graphics, applied arts and posters - are of international importance and contain over 500,000 objects of aesthetic and technical development.

In the heart of Zurich, in the renovated and reopened main building on Exhibition Street in 2018, the museum presents selected collection objects as well as exhibitions on changing topics. The listed building from 1933 is considered an outstanding example of modern Swiss architecture. The museum includes the “Swiss Design Lounge”, a meeting place where you can linger and try out outstanding Swiss design, a spacious educational studio and the museum's own café with an adjoining park with a pond.

In the dynamic Zurich West quarter, the museum has its second location, the Toni area. The former largest yoghurt factory in Europe is also the campus of the Zurich University of the Arts ZHdK. With changing exhibitions, the museum builds a bridge to teaching and research, shows projects that are open to experimentation and takes a position on current debates in design. In the Toni area, there is also the museum's collection archive, which can be visited in guided tours.
