Museum für Urgeschichte(n)
The permanent exhibition at the Museum of Prehistory in Zug presents archaeological finds from Canton Zug dating from the Early Stone Age to the Early Middle Ages. The main focus of the collection is on the pile-dwelling period. The exhibits consist of finds from three UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the Late Bronze Age settlement at Zug-Sumpf, and other highlights. The Roman period is represented by outstanding exhibits, including a mill and clay figurines at Cham-Hagendorn.
Scenes and life-sized figures as well as models and stories ensure that the museum is particularly interesting for families and schools and the everyday lives of people from the past are vividly brought to life. Schools can avail of craft rooms and educational materials. Events for the whole family, workshops for those interested in crafts and a wide range of guided tours, tailor-made programmes for children and kids’ birthday parties give people of all ages an authentic taste of prehistory.
