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.

In addition to posters and books, time-honored classics, unique pieces, and stylish souvenirs are also available — from the REX potato peeler to Bauhaus articles, whose design is closely related to the museum’s main building. We also carry a constantly changing selection of limited editions and products from the current exhibitions. Visit us and be inspired!
Posters, publications, and selected editions may also be ordered online.
Treat yourself to a cup of coffee or tea with a homemade cake or try our changing menu of cold and warm lunch meals. Piadine, delicious sandwiches, pasta, and salads are freshly prepared in our kitchen. In the cold season, a soup (also homemade) completes the selection. Enjoy the café's open-air facilities – right on the banks of the pond or in the adjacent museum park.
