Intro

On the edge of the old town, Zug Castle is the oldest still preserved profane building in Zug and is a landmark of the city. With its many nooks and crannies, Zug Castle has been home to the museum of cultural history for the city and the Canton of Zug since 1983.

The castle dates back to the 12th century, although the first signs of a settlement are even older. Based on archaeological finds, 26 different building phases between the 8th century and the 20th century have been reconstructed. From 1979 to 1982, the building underwent extensive restoration and opened as a historical museum in 1983. It treasures, documents and shares the history of Zug from the Late Middle Ages to the present.

The permanent display was redesigned in 2014 and each room presents its own exhibition on a specific theme. This creates a charming variety, which inspires a return visit to explore deeper and experience things from a different perspective. In the special exhibitions it holds regularly, the museum provides an in-depth insight into current and particular topics.

Children and families can explore the castle in a fun, playful way. Younger visitors will love the room especially designed for them: it is a great place to play, dress up and spend time.
