Aargauer Kunsthaus

One of Switzerland's best art programmes in a building revamped by Herzog & de Meuron

Founded in 1959, the Aargauer Kunsthaus is one of the leading art museums in Switzerland. Home to an outstanding permanent collection of Swiss art from the 18th century to the present, it presents about ten exhibitions a year, often in collaboration with the artists themselves.

In 2003 the museum building was expanded based on designs by Herzog & de Meuron Architects in collaboration with the artist Rémy Zaugg. The entrance and hall are startlingly inviting.
