Museum fur Gestaltung Schaudepot6
Why locals love it
The Museum Für Gestaltung is an institution in Zürich, and the Schaudepot (roughly translates to "look-warehouse") they set up while some work is being done on the main building is no exception. They always have dope exhibitions going on, usually quite unique. It's the main museum for Visual Communication and Design in Switzerland.
Why you should visit it
The Museum is set in the Zürcher Hochschule Der Kunst (ZHdK), the university of arts. The building in itself is a gem and a must see for anyone who's into architecture in some way. If you're in the city during a rainy day and want to see a different exhibition and a museum that goes a bit offroad, go for it.
It's only 8.- to enter if you take your student ID with you ;)
