Small but relatively impressive amount of Asian art pieces exhibited in a small premise of a small but quite a famous Swiss village. I enjoyed my visiting as there were only one couple around so no any "crowded selfie" around. I think it's a great...More

The presentation of artefacts in the Chapel is lovely. This is a very peaceful place, but is definitely upstaged by its neighbours. I thought it relatively poor value compared to the Giger and the castle. Still worth a visit, good place to refresh after the...More
