The Swiss National Museum

Surprising interior and exterior

Welcome to the cultural activity centre par excellence. Throughout history, Zurich has absorbed all the trends and influences of different cultures that visited the territory, starting with the Romans, who were the first rulers of the area, and then the German, British, and French influences. Therefore, a large part of this artistic legacy is found in the Swiss National Museum: this special building is situated next to the Central Station, which you will recognise by its curious construction, as its design looks very much like it has been taken from a fairy tale, thanks to its curved towers and its cone-shaped roof. Inside the museum, you'll be able to enjoy a review of Swiss national history that ranges from the pre-historic era, to well into the 21st century, making it a must-visit for getting to know and understand what the country has been through. In addition, an important collection is exhibited of other very famous artists such as Van Gogh and Picasso.
