It is with good reason that we regard Mother Nature as the greatest inventor of all. Going on tours of museums engaged in tracking the evolution of flora and fauna makes this eminently clear. And where else but here can you gaze in wonder at a mammoth today?
In bygone times, the territory covered by present-day Switzerland bore witness to great waves of migration. All tribes who once settled in our country have left their trace. You can now learn more about a great many of these in the hallowed halls of our historical museums.
The Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne is not only our country’s most visited museum, but also one of the most popular attractions around. Switzerland is also home to other exhibition venues that tell you more about a vast range of technological achievements.
Perhaps Switzerland’s small size is the reason why it exhibits so many great regional differences that are carefully cherished in everyday life just as much as they are preserved in the form of artefacts from a bygone era. You can view these exhibits in our local heritage museums.
Want to combine a stay in one of our towns or cities with a museum visit? Absolutely no problem: our urban centres have a vast array of unique collections to offer. That’s why they are perfect places in which to combine sightseeing and culture delights – virtually without parallel anywhere else in the world.
Admittedly, they sometimes seem a bit on the dry and dusty side. But museums don’t have to be boring. In Switzerland you see, our museums feature interactive exhibitions where touching is expressly encouraged. So you just might find that once they are there, your kids won’t want to leave.
