Schweizerisches Alpines Museum (Swiss Alpine Museum)
Schweizerisches Alpines Museum (Swiss Alpine Museum) Review
A slideshow overview of Switzerland's relationship with its mountains acts as an introduction to this detailed museum. Exhibits include massive topographical models and relief maps; audiovisual consoles covering topics such as the Roman introduction of viticulture, power generation, and global warming; Alpine farming implements, toys, and skis; frank descriptions of mountain life; ceremonial masks; and Hodler's seven-part mural of the Matterhorn's conquest. You'll leave with a hearty appreciation for Swiss tenacity. All signage is in English.
