This museum covers many aspects of the live in historic times. The staff is friendly. The place is not that appropriate for persons with physical constraints.

We live nearby, and we do enjoy going there in particular when it rains. The environment is cosy, with great history, lovely antique furniture and some good paintings.

The Museum Burg Zug is the place to visit. It is unique in its collection and the building itself is a marvel. No other place in the small town of Zug gives you such a great insight into live at the good ol' days.

Been visiting Zug for 6 years and only just visited this Museum. Excellent place, very interesting. Staff lovely and helpful. Even a good English guide book to borrow. Spent a very pleasant afternoon.

Burg Zug or Zug Castle is one of the older, unique structures you would see in town; it almost has a medieval feel to it. The museum is good but there are other better places to see in the city.

Thank you. Have a look at our permanent and temporary exhibitions next time, you will enjoy them, especially with children.

The castle is beautiful from outside but disappointing inside. In fact, the museum is very small. On the 3 floors you will only find a few rooms. A reconstruction of an old farmacy and an ancient church tabernacle are the most notable things you will...More

Don't expect a big castle bit the Burg Zug is a nice place to go and visit. We usually come here with friends or family visiting us. Always a great place to go for a walk and see some historic buildings.
