The Stadtmuseum Rapperswil-Jona presents 800 years of town history and culture in a unique ensemble of buildings. The distinctive newly constructed «Janus» building with its perforated façade in architectural bronze is the hallmark of the museum. The Breny House, a stately townhouse erected in 1492, transports you to bygone days. Preserved in its original condition, the building contains a number of atmospheric rooms. The entire ensemble is dominated by the mighty tower from the 14th century. The newly conceived permanent exhibition explores the eventful history of Rapperswil-Jona. Encompassing historic interiors, the art of goldsmithing, war stories, industry, tourism and Circus Knie – the exhibition showcases a great diversity of subjects. Video and audio stations entertain and refer to the present while interactive elements encourage visitor participation.
