Swiss National Museum

Local nameSchweizerisches Landesmuseum
LocationAltstadt, Zurich, Switzerland

The Swiss National Museum—part of the Musée Suisse Group, itself affiliated with the Federal Office of Culture is located in the city of Zurich, Switzerland's largest city, next to the Hauptbahnhof.

The museum building of 1898 in the historicist style was built by Gustav Gull in the form of the French Renaissance city chateaus. His impressive architecture with dozens of towers, courts and his astonishing park on a peninsula between the rivers Sihl and Limmat has become one of the main sights of the Old City District of Zurich.

The exhibition tour takes the visitor from prehistory through ancient times and the Middle Ages to the 20th century. There is a very rich section with gothic art, chivalry and a comprehensive collection of liturgical wooden sculptures, panel paintings and carved altars.
