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 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....More
