The Natural History Museum's primary focus is depicting animals in their natural environment. The museum is also home to the Plaggenstock Treasure, an astounding display of spectacular quartz crystals.

Animal Diorama
The 220 animal dioramas with mammals and birds in their natural environments have the capacity to transport visitors to Africa and Asia, to Alaska and to the mountains of Switzerland.

The exhibition also includes "Barry", a Saint Bernard dog who died in 1814 and has always been the public's number one favorite attraction.

Giant Crystals - The Planggenstock Treasure
Visitors can also admire 50 brilliant, extremely clear quartz crystals as well as many large rose fluorite specimens.
The most striking piece of quartz crystal from Plaggenstock is a smoky quartz group one meter in length.
