Exhibition, the story of Switzerland
The new exhibition on Swiss history describes the development of Switzerland over a period of 550 years. The walk begins at the end of the Middle Ages and ends with the challenges for the democratic institutions of the present.
The 1,000-m2 Swiss history exhibition depicts how Switzerland came to be over a period of 550 years. The tour through the centuries begins in the late Middle Ages and ends with the challenges facing democratic institutions in the present. The exhibition illustrates the journey from a confederation of states to a federal state as a struggle for identity. In addition, it crosses a time boundary that is often considered taboo for historical museums: It dares to examine contemporary history.
