When we entered the museum, we were asked if we wanted a tour in English. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and took us through the highlights of the history and artifacts in the museum. Having a guide made the visit much more interesting.
The exhibits are well designed and present the history of Switzerland from BC to AD times.
There are many artifacts dating from pre-10,000 BC. Information is presented in English as well as German.
There is so much to learn and see in a short visit.

I've been to the Swiss National Museum (Landesmuseum) several times. The building looks like a castle. There's a lot to see and it's a great place to learn about Swiss history and culture.

I know that I am late to answer, but I would like to add that if the lockers at the museum are not large enough to hold your bag - the train/bus station is just across the street. They have lockers for bags as well.
