  • Swiss national museum is very friendly to visitors. There are guidelines in five kinds of language. Visitors Could listen the introduction when they arrived suitable articles arranged as years. Some advanced digital technology and equipments have been used in the museum. Visitors can use their hands and foot to touch the fictional exhibitions on the wall and table.
  • We had a great time there. Using technology to make it more entertaining is a success. Staff friendly with a perfect English. Entry fee is affordable and free locker are provided.
