For my part, I found the Einstein Museum, beautiful. The parallel between the life of this man is the story and very well found. For information, we spent almost four hours in the Museum and it deserves them.
Absolutely loved this museum. The EINSTEIN museum is probably the best part! Lots of information about Einstein's personal and professional life and also gives some history on the time period he lived in and the current conditions. There's also an exhibit on the history of Bern/Swiss inventions and history, that was super fascinating as a visitor to the area.
This is an amazing place and you could easily spend hours and hours here. Fun, educational and immensely well presented. The route is numbered, so you know exactly where to start. The museum delivers on Einstein and the history of Bern. This is a must visit. If you are in Bern for a day, make the time. I must admit to having a bias, being a physicist, but with such a beautiful city, it would be a shame not to appreciate it fully due to ignorance that is so easily and gently rectified.
