  • The exhibition «water our» guides the visitor in the year 2051. Interesting information about climate change, which will affect the availability of water in Switzerland.

  • Bad weather - so time off in a museum. We are uninformed then went to the alpine Museum. Admission 5 for the "bivouac", 16. - incl special exhibition on the water. The bivouac in a room showed several hundred jars with Wildkräutern.Auf of a list could you read what is now exactly in every glass in it. Then it was in the special exhibition "Water future ideas". Looks minimalist exhibition where you can learn about the headphones as well the roused about the water. Rather what for top-heavy people. There were certainly some great info, but I'm probably too old for that. I was expecting exhibits about mountain boarding actions of previous years beimn Alpine Museum, Louis Trenkers toothpick or similar. Or what about glaciers, Swiss Berge...alpines just. Since I find the exhibition at the natural history museum to lengths better. Matter of opinion is sure.. definitely not for children! Why not back to the roots? Anyone who enters the museum with the thought to learn about the alps has wrong thougt. The exibition shows in the bivouac (5) hundred of glasses with alpine herbs. The exebition "water" is very minimalist and you get the information with headphones. There is nothing about mountains, geologic, glaciers. If you want to learn something about this - go to the natural history museum.

  • We visited the Museum with two school-age children, but we had to translate all (Italian), beautiful exposure focused on water as a resource, but since the whole is seen as if we were hypothetically in the future (2051), I would have designed it more set to children and young people, the future is theirs. We were expecting something set to the history of mountaineering in Switzerland (CAS etc) but it's not about that.

  • If you look for a museum dedicated to history of the Swiss Alps, keep walking. This is more of a modern art museum themed with the Alps.
  • Nice and well executed exhibitions
  • Expensive. The tickets costs 16 CHF.
  • It's something different and it's great.
  • I recommend
