Valais Museum of History (Musée d'Histoire du Valais / Geschichtsmuseum)

Interesting
Formerly the governor's residence, this 12C castle houses a permanent exhibition on the history of the canton. Sacred art and popular religious art (sculptures, gold work, pictures), alternates with pieces from daily life (furniture) and military life (weaponry, armour). The renovated rooms are small, making for an intimate atmosphere in which you can see the objects from close up.
