In that case your plans fit your interests, so well done! Zurich and Geneva are perfect for various museum visits. Zurich has a wonderful historical old told town center. There's plenty of good scenery and hiking options in or around the other towns. Interlaken isn't very pretty, but the surrounding region is. You can consider Grindelwald or another smaller village instead. It depends on whether you prefer lots of shops, restaurants and train connections versus better scenery in a more remote village. Lucerne has a bit of everything, so that's a good choice too. Please see the links for details and hotel suggestions.
One thing to note is that two nights in a place like Zermatt is very short. With just one day, it depends on the weather of that single day whether any trips into the mountains are worth it. With some luck it's a beautiful sunny day, with bad luck you won't see the Matterhorn at all.
A 15-day Swiss Travel Pass won't cover 20 days, so a Swiss Travel Pass Flex makes sense. How many free travel days you need depends on your day trip plans. I think 8 free travel days should do it for you. Please see myswissalps.com/swisst ravelpassflex for how this pass works, what's included, and where to buy it.
