Fodor's Review

The main repository for Switzerland's important legacy in graphic design, posters, and applied arts, this vast collection has been recently rehoused in a fully renovated former milk-products factory. The museum was originally envisioned as an academy devoted to design and applied arts. Innovative temporary exhibitions focus on architecture, poster art, graphic design, and photography. The new location also allows visitors, with a reservation, to admire not only the exhibitions but also the museum's collection of design, graphics, and poster art (500,000 pieces). The core of the collection is in a freestanding high-bay warehouse on two floors, which operates as a display storage area.
