Temporary Closure Due to Renovation
Fotomuseum Winterthur is realising its vision of a museum of the future: due to urgently needed renovation work, the institution is planning a new building and redevelopment project. The renovation phase will last from June 2023 to spring 2025, during which time the exhibition spaces at Grüzenstrasse 44 will remain closed. However, Fotomuseum Winterthur will go on offering a variety of events, workshops and digital encounters and for schools and groups numerous educational programmes – in the photo lab or in the area of image and media competence – will continue. Fotostiftung Schweiz will be open regularly throughout the renovation phase and will present a varied programme.
The exhibition spaces of Fotomuseum Winterthur will remain closed until spring 2025 due to new construction and renovation work, however, our exploration of photography will continue: Fotomuseum Winterthur will offer a variety of events, workshops and digital encounters. Detailed information on our programme can be found on our website.
