Alps and army, banks and farmers, Heidi and Helvetii, cheese and cantons, edelweiss and confederates – Why is Switzerland like it is? The largest cultural-historical collection of Switzerland in the National Museum Zurich provides answers.
The National Museum enjoys a central position just a minute’s walk from the main railway station in Zurich. The museum is one of the attractions of this city on the River Limmat. Gustav Gull’s listed building from the 19th century has been extended with the addition of a new building designed by architects Christ & Gantenbein and completed in summer 2016.
The National Museum Zurich showcases the history of Switzerland from its early beginnings until the present day in the permanent exhibitions. Every year, there are also several temporary exhibitions and an impressive fringe programme, offering everything from debates to workshops.
This museum greets you in the following languages: D/F/I/E
