Fodor's Review

Opened in 2013 in the former Archaeological Museum, this space's theme is "Man and Nature in the Valais," which aims to inspire visitors to consider their relationship with the natural environment in the Valais, from the Mesolithic age to today. Installations feature typical flora and life-size representations of fauna that inhabit this diverse land.
