The museum is one of the attractions of this city on the River Limmat, a thrill for both culture enthusiasts and fans of architecture. The building is an ensemble, combining a graceful historical old building from the year 1898 and a new sculptural wing which is connected to the existing facility, enabling a tour through old and new. Theextension designed by Swiss architects Christ & Gantenbein has given the museum large, flexible exhibition halls, a modern library and an auditorium for public events. The new building was conceived in line with contemporaryecological criteria in the Minergie-Eco-P standard an d sits in perfect harmony with Gustav Gull’s section, which comprises various historicising architectural elements from the late Middle Ages and the modern era.
