Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, Toni-Areal

Museum für Gestaltung Zürich

The  Museum für Gestaltung is Switzerland’s leading museum for design and visual communication.

Located in the heart of Zurich-West, the city’s dynamic trend district, our annex at Toni-Areal presents several temporary exhibitions a year. Shows build a bridge to Zurich University of the Arts, feature experimental projects, and take a stance on current debates in design. The Toni-Areal also houses the museum’s collection of over 500,000 objects. Our guided tours provide visitors closer insights into this impressive archive of design history.
