Die Lange Nacht Der Zürcher Museen
On Saturday evening we went to Zurich's long night of the museums 2013. It was my first time to finally manage to attend this, and I really loved it!
We started our tour from Uhrenmuseum Beyer [the clock museum], which to me was absolutely amazing, and among the best of what we saw this year. From there we went to Alterthümer-Magazin, where we looked at a large collection of old… well… everything! House appliances, tools…. Then we visited the Rathaus [town hall], which was also cool to see, and from there we headed to Kunsthaus. It was interesting to have a look at Kunsthaus' pretty huge collection… However perhaps "everything mixed with everything" to that extent isn't really for me. =P
Then we went to Museum Rietberg Zürich. Their special exhibition of the month is themed "Tibet in Comics". From Tintin to Super Girl… that was absolutely awesome. We also had a look at their general exhibition, which is a truly impressive collection of artefacts from various ancient cultures. What was very impressive to me was that they actually had a small but nice Persian collection too.
After that the museums started to close down but there was of course parties at a couple of venues 'till about morning. ;) For me this year's museum night was a great experience and I think I will go again in the next years to see what I didn't get the chance to see this year.
