  • It's one of my favorite museums. An exceptional form of seeing a historical scene, the internement of French soldiers who fled to Switzerland in 1871. The first big challenge for the Red Cross, which was founded shortly before. And for Switzerland, it was an incredible effort to deal with nearly 90000 solders, feed them, care for them. Therefore, the Bourbaki Panorama is much more then just a painting. It's part of European culture and history. And you cover it with a 30' visit, so as well suitable with kids or people in a hurry.
  • Not too many panoramic paintings left. Nicely restored painting depicting the surrender of French troops in the Franco-Prussian conflict in 1870-1871. The restored painting now includes some 3D displays to help bring the painting to life. Very good display of some early photography methods. Easy walk and on the way to the Lion.
  • Nice experience. Huge panoramic picture dedicated to the German-French war of 1870-1871.Very good sound effects.
  • Worst sightseeing ever. When I got my ticket, the lady told me that there will be English explanation after French but she didn't give me the iPad. I waited 30 minutes for the English explanation and discovered that another tourist had the iPad with English so I had to ask her to give the iPad to me, and she said the iPad is included in the ticket price. I was so annoyed that I had to waste so much time. Worst customer service and sightseeing ever. And the content is pretty boring. I don't recommend.
  • Most certainly worth a visit. If you have a Swiss Pass, it’s a no brainer to come here. The panorama is very impressive and offers a glimpse into Swiss history that I didn’t know about before visiting.
