Description

The Rietberg Museum is a museum in Zürich, Switzerland, displaying Asian, African, American and Oceanian art. It is the only art museum focusing on non-European art and design in Switzerland, the third-largest museum in Zürich, and the largest to be run by the city itself.
The Rietberg Museum is situated in the 17-acre (69,000 m2) Rieterpark in central Zürich, and consists of several historic buildings: the Wesendonck Villa, the Remise (or “Depot”), the Rieter Park-Villa, and the Schönberg Villa. In 2007 a new building designed by Alfred Grazioli and Adolf Krischanitz was opened – the addition of this largely subterranean building, known as “Smaragd”, more than doubled the museum’s exhibition space.
