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. In 2007 it received approximately 157,000 visitors.
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.

BEST MUSEUM IN ZURICH. If you have to choose only one museum in the city, this is the one! The park is wonderful, the architecture amazing and the exhibitions fantastic! The CHF 16 you pay for all you can see is absolutely worthwile! This ethnographical museum is AN ABSOLUTE MUST WHEN IN ZURICH. Bear in mind that they have night opening every Wednesday until 8 PM and do not miss the beautiful Villa in the park in which you can find the only typical indian miniature paintings in Switzerland! A full delight not to be missed!

They offer to visit the storage space of objects that are not currently in the exhibition. Don't miss that out.

In the early 1940s the city of Zürich purchased the Rieterpark and the Wesendonck Villa. In 1949 the Wesendonck Villa was selected, by referendum, to be rebuilt into a museum for the Baron Eduard von der Heydt's art collection, which he had donated to the city in 1945. This was carried out in 1951-52 under the architect Alfred Gradmann. The Rietberg Museum was opened on 24 May 1952. Until 1956 the director was Johannes Itten, the Swiss expressionist painter. In 1976 the city acquired the Schönberg Villa, which had been threatened with demolition, and opened it in 1978 as an extension of the museum. Today the Villa is also home to an extensive non-lending library administrated by the museum

Great Place to visit! Well organised too. Pro tip- there are different buildings on the plot, and all had different themes inside, which regularly change! Don’t forget to visit all!!
