Zunfthaus zur Meisen

The Zunfthaus zur Meisen is located in Fraumunster abbey square, also referred to as Munsterhof. It is a guild house. It is a historically valuable structure in Zurich’s Lindenhof quarter, and it is where the faience and porcelain collection of the Swiss National Museum is held. 

The museum is located in a beautiful and old building, and it is free to get into with a Zurich card or Swiss pass. It is very close to Fraumunster church, so you could easily plan to see both of them in a single day. The exhibition is somewhat small, but it will be interesting to people who love porcelain. The museum is frequented by people from Switzerland, as well as the tourist population from abroad.
