Lucerne's Natural History Museum

Devoted to geology, mineralogy (crystals and fossils) and ecology, the museum showcases a striking collection of over 250,000 specimens of insects. Inside a fake strong room, multi-coloured butterflies, grasshoppers and giant beetles are displayed like rare, precious jewels guarded in a safe.
