Originally established in 1878, the Museum of Design in Zürich was evolved from the city's pre-existing Museum of Arts and Crafts, which was founded in 1875. A magnificent celebration of architecture, industrial design, visual communication, and craft, the museum is a repository of over 500,000 objects which attest to the very genesis of design. An integral part of the Zurich University of Design, the museum plays host to an array of insightful tours and exhibitions which revolve around the greater, as well as the intricate nuances of design and visual art. The Museum of Design hosts five to seven exhibitions throughout the year, as well as several smaller lobby-exhibitions, which are both, diverse and inclusive in terms of color, concept and methodology. Although the museum's graphics collection has been around since its conception, the poster collection comprises the most pieces, numbering well over 300,000. Focusing extensively on the four prime disciplines of design, posters, graphics and applied art, the museum has come to be much revered, both locally and globally.
