This completely renovated museum is not big but is a sensational introduction to Swiss History and culture. Up to date media is used to guide the visitor of all ages through the main details of the Swiss people and its country. Not to miss!

The outside of the museum is nice looking next to the river. The inside is fairly big but only 20% of it has something to exhibit. It is 10 Franc to enter but not much interesting to see. That is the worst national museum I...More

The Museum is promising, but they are restoring some part of the museum and now they only have a small part from the 1918 public protests, the hippy/pease revolution of the 60 dees and geology of Switzerland. I would recommend waiting for the finish of...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.
