Forum of Swiss History

Interesting
Opened in 1991 as part of the commemorations of 700 years of the Confederation, this resolutely modern national museum deals with the cultural and everyday lives of the Swiss from the 14C to the 19C. Around 800 carefully selected ojects - some very rare, like the Palm Sunday Christ (c 1200), Jesus processing on a donkey - bring perspective and realism to historical discourse. This informative visit helps in better understanding the Swiss nation and its founding principles.
