Built in an restored homestead, this museum features restored rooms with historic furniture, fixtures and appliances - stoves, etc., - from the last 2 centuries. You can learn a lot about the way the locals lived in this part of Switzerland.

Watch out for the limited opening times. Do go if you have a chance - the room settings from the past are really interesting and the history of the valley and the railway are well set out.
