Museum für Archäologie Thurgau

The museum shows archaeological objects from Canton Thurgau from Neolithic period to modern times. The collection is focussed on interesting artefacts from the prehistoric pile-dwellings - since 2007 UNESCO worldheritage - and from the Roman empire. Highligts are the golden beaker from Eschenz (c. 2400 BC), a panpipe, wooden combs, tasks, brushes and a statue. The methods and technics of archaeology are shown on the 3rd floor. In the vaulted cellar is located an exhibition called "Anderswelten" about death and cult.
