The upper floor houses an extensive exhibition relating to Swiss history while a range of collections is on display on the ground floor.

The National Museum houses the largest cultural and historical collection in the country. Behind its over 100-year-old walls, history comes to life as visitors gain an insight into how previous generations lived, thought and felt.
