Cute old fashion museum, yet with few dynamic presentations. It's a small and not pretentious exhibition. Who love quite and calm places will love it. By nice weather, You may walk to the very near Castle toping the old city.

This museum holds great promise, when viewing the beautiful exterior and then entering and seeing the grand staircase! For me, this amazing walk up to the second floor was one of two highlights in the museum. The beautiful Art Nouveau interior staircase is decorated with flowers, angels, grape vines, copper “wall paper”, inlaid and carved wood, glowing stain glass windows... More

Very beautiful building on the lake shore, impressive outside and very interesting collections, nice exhibits. The most interesting part is clearly the Jaquet Droz automates (androids). Do not miss the demonstation, it is unique and quite incredible!!!!

Take the time to watch the video rolling beside them. It is in French, if I recall it right, however it shows very nicely the working principle and the... More

This is a nice museum considering that it's not in Bern or Zurich. It's got paintings with a Swiss emphasis to them which was fun. For instance, it was cool after having visited Lauterbrunnen to clearly recognise the Monch, Eiger and Jungfrau in a painting. The biggest draw for this museum is of course the famous automata. Unfortunately, due to... More
