  • A small treasure, for all those who have a real passion not only for the Lord of the Rings, but for Tolkien in general. Be accompanied by the talented Enza and listen to anecdotes and stories related to the many objects in the collection. An unexpected encounter in the beautiful mountains of Switzerland. Recommended for real fans!

  • I visited the museum yesterday. The first 2 hours were horror. Mr. Greising had a special way of designing the interactive guide and he just put people on the running meter. Comments like: "You really don't know anything!" or similar came uninterrupted. It seemed to me rather as if Mr. Greising had made the museum, that someone finally respects him for his great knowledge. For two hours it was only about gods, who had something to do with Tolkien only in the most remote sense. Even when someone from the ranks said that we would like to go to the museum instead of hearing his information about Germans, gods etc., he just said: he wouldn't let anyone in who hadn't been with him before at school! He continued to speak without regard to needs. Someone else even sat dozing on the ground and many were visibly annoyed. After 2 hours of simply standing and standing still without seeing anything from the museum, the connection to Switzerland began, which was really exciting. After three hours of monologue (and mere interactions) by Mr. Greising, we were finally allowed to enter the museum. The walk through the museum was very exciting and well built and impressively built. Mr Greising gave us a lot of information. After 5.5 hours instead of 2.5 we had made it. I find Mr Greising's collection very impressive and the rooms very beautiful and great. Mr. Greising, I would love to make the mythology and geography of the old times at the end of the museum, so that those who are no longer interested in it can go. In addition, your species often comes over very negative and appreciative. Of course, the visitors do not have the same great knowledge as you, so they come to the museum to be able to learn something else. To tell them all the time how limited they are does not create a pleasant learning atmosphere. But also thanks for the beautifully designed museum. It was really beautifully done and I learned a lot. Greetings

  • One of the best Museum of Switzerland. A must for any fan of Middle-earth. Thanks to all the team, specially Herr Greisinger and Enza.
  • Such a beautiful place! And the nicest guides ever! Amazing collection and awesome guided tour. I was with a French group, but I'm learning German now and plan to go back for the German tour! Definitely worth going there all the way from Paris through Zurich (and before that from Brazil!), and I hope to go back again one day!!!
