  • I try and visit well-known art whenever we travel, and this is unlike anything I've ever seen. Depicting the French army's retreat during the end of the Franco-Prussian War (in which 87,000 injured, i...  more »
  • Interactive unique attraction with free ipad rental to better explain the painting and make the visit interactive.  more »
  • Nothing special and no interest, is an extremely small space that adds nothing to the tourist-visitor experience. Brown possibly Yes good, periodically rotate the room with the seating of the patron.

  • It's a really good place that shows the time of war. But quite expensive for what that is. I liked it but thought it was too small
  • There is a 360 degree artwork (painting plus objects) depicting the defeated Swiss Army returning. I found the effect realistic and touching. The eye for detail and the three dimensional effect is remarkable. There is a plaque which states that Holder (a famous Swiss artist) was not looking forward to being part of the team that created this work, but he should be happy with the result!
  • In these days of 3d virtual realities when ancient battles can be brought back to life through computer graphics a still panorama feels a little anachronistic. On the other hand it is a giant one and you get a sound accompaniment with a narrative that explains what you see. Additionally you can rent mobile devices with earphones to dig even deeper in the historical facts.
  • Nice 360 degree painting of the Bourbaki event (1871) clear explanation from the tourguide on what happened.
  • Got tickets as a part of a packsgr with tickets to the Glacier museum. My second favorite exhibit in the area (Glacier museum, Bourbaki Panorama, Lion monument). A historical event I knew very little about (USA nationality) and found very interesting. Also the sheer size of the painting and model integration is very impressive. I recommend listening to the explanation of the event/painting which can be found in English.
