About Musée Rath
Resembling a Greek Temple, the architecture of the museum is adorned with six huge pillars at its entrance waiting to welcome its visitors. The pale gray exterior of the monument contrasts with the multi colored murals and frescoes hanging inside the museum.
These paintings also include some of the most contemporary collections of art which made the name of the museum pop under the list of Swiss National Important Cultural Properties. Besides these paintings, you could also spot an array of collection from the 17th century along with many still portraits which seems to have bound the time within its frame.
Also, some of the 18th century portraits are certified as ‘Dead Life’ because of the essence of silence they possess inside them. You can come to the place to witness all these along with permanent and temporary exhibits, art teachings and social meetings which will refresh your love for art and paintings and give you a memorable experience.
