As the home of both the E.G. Bührle Collection (containing one of the most famous collections of French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism anywhere in the world) and the Swiss National Museum, Zurich is a first class museum city. Apart from the aforementioned heavy hitters, however, there are also some smaller, more specified curiosities for visitors looking to branch out and scale down.
1. The Johann Jacobs Museum for the Cultural History of Coffee. Though currently closed for renovation, the Jacobs is scheduled to reopen later this year. Contained within its walls is a permanent exhibition dedicated to promoting the cultural significance of what the museum claims has been the second most important commodity (after oil) in the world from the 17th century to the modern day.
