This museum is one of few in Bern to be open on Mondays, and we found it to be fairly quiet on that day, with car parking available right at the entrance. Although it is small in size, the museum has quite a good paleontology collection, interesting temporary exhibitions, and features a remarkable display of beautiful Alpine minerals, including huge quartz crystals and rose fluorite specimens. If you do not read German, seek out the English translation books that are to be found in racks in various locations. A little cinema, the entrance to which is hidden in a corner of the basement, shows an informative 20-minute video about the Planggenstock Treasure.
