The National Museum Zurich showcases the history of Switzerland from its early beginnings until the present day in the permanent exhibitions “Archaeology in Switzerland”, “History of Switzerland” and “Collections Gallery”. The archaeology exhibition focuses on the main stages of human history from prehistoric times to the conversion to Christianity in the early Middle Ages. “Swiss history” provides a comprehensive insight into the political history of the Confederation and ends with current topics, such as the demise of Swiss banking secrecy. “Collections Gallery” offers visitors a representative insight into the artefacts of the Swiss National Museum – with around 850,000 objects from the Middle Ages to the present day the National Museum has the largest cultural history collection in the country. The National Museum regularly houses temporary exhibitions. These address historical, cultural or socially relevant themes and are supplemented with debates, lectures, readings or workshops. Children don’t miss out either. For them there are age-appropriate guided tours, adventure tours and special workshops.
