  • The museum was amazing. So much information. The signage was in multiple languages, including English. So I was able to learn and enjoy. The special exhibit on Trees and the environmental impact was powerful. Tickets are included if you buy a Swiss rail pass.
  • Swiss national museum is very friendly to visitors. There are guidelines in five kinds of language. Visitors Could listen the introduction when they arrived suitable articles arranged as years. Some advanced digital technology and equipments have been used in the museum. Visitors can use their hands and foot to touch the fictional exhibitions on the wall and table.
