  • a very small apartment shows that a genius can live in any space. There Einstein lived 7 years and there his son was born. Nothing particularly interesting. Upstairs an exhibition that I didn't see carefully.

  • The museum is located in the middle of the Old Town shopping district. And that's it. Of course, the situation, of course, approximate to the time, authentic furniture, but to do here more than 15 minutes is nothing:-).

  • Thoroughly enjoyed this museum. Be sure to watch the 20 min video as it supplements the rear of the exhibits. Then there's a lot of reading - but it is fascinating. If you like history and historic people, you'll love this museum.Also if you need to know more after this go to the History museum across the river and there's more on Einstein there
  • This is a small place; however this is a nice and short introduction to Mr. Einstein life. Especially for any age kids and teens nowadays. There is a nice video; however it can be very hot in this room when outside temperature is high. For 30-40 minutes going through Mr. Einstein life this is worthy. If one is interested more and has more time, there is a wonderful Bern Historical Museum.
