This circular diorama portrays the hardships of war from the 19th century...while it isn't the most advanced painting you'll see, its definitely interesting to see and gives you some sense of what it would've been like. There's also a small museum to prepare you for this art piece. $12? Fortunately it was covered by our Swiss Travel Pass, because I don't think it was worth it. Unless you're really into Swiss and French history, you probably won't spend more than 20 minutes here.

This huge painted panorama, depicting the arrival of 80,000 French troops, fleeing from the Prussians, in Switzerland in the middle of winter is breathtaking in its detail and extremely moving in its depiction of the human suffering caused by war. The accompanying video and display explains the significance of the event. Very, Very impressive.

This panorama picture with video as well depicts the crossing of French troops into Switzerland when pursued by the German army in the Franco/Prussian war in 1870. It is memorable, fascinating in its detail and really worth viewing for anyone interested in art or history.

This is a depiction of what was closest to movies before movies existed... I found it very instructive, both on the subject depicted (the French army fleeing after the 1870 war) and on this art/instruction/entertainment concept that existed in the 19th century.
