Generally, museums are in big cities, or at least in highly visited villages, but hardly are they ever on a 2,100-meter-high mountain pass.

All the more reason why one should not miss this interesting museum, the National Museum of the San Gottardo. It is in a building dating back to 1834 and used to be not only a customs house, but also a rest stop where weary travelers could sleep before continuing their dangerous journey.
The impressive and tastefully renovated building demonstrates vividly, and in a variety of ways, the history of the mountain pass as well as the evolution of transportation and its cultural, historic, political and anthropological importance. The visit to Switzerland's highest museum is a worthwiile experience.
