  • The title was locked in brackets to show that she was a original mom, and it was a surprise to see Heidi on display in Switzerland.

  • This is considered the National Museum of Switzerland. It is located behind the Central train station in an elegant old castle. Before the visit it is interesting to read the explanatory folders about the structure and organization of the space and the collection. There are some rooms that report through videos, but there are others that we do not have enough information. The museum has 3 permanent collections and 1 temporary. In the permanents has one about archaeology: everyday objects of prehistoric times, such as hunting tools and works of goldsmiths. Another is about the history of Switzerland with objects that tell the immigration, politics, economics and religion and the last the gallery of collections that shows the objects, how they were made and their meanings. Unmissable visit. Check the days and times of operation. Ticket 10 Swiss francs.
