I think the Swiss National Museum has the potential to be an amazing museum. They have lots of interactive parts to their exhibits that really capture your attention and draw you in. My problem is that there is a general lack of focus around national...More

I know that I am late to answer, but I would like to add that if the lockers at the museum are not large enough to hold your bag - the train/bus station is just across the street. They have lockers for bags as well.
