We entered hoping to see some history and culture of Swttzerland or Ticino - so were disappointed to see the whole museum is about cultures in the south pacific and indian subcontinent. It does have some lovely cultural art pieces, but this is not meant for tourists.

Collection of interesting cultural artefacts - mostly from islands around new guinea. Not large but a nice way to spend an hour- with English translation available for most exhibits. The museum is easily got to by boat or bus and sits in a very pretty setting. Quite expensive to get it if you don't have a Swiss card
