The Forum of Swiss History Schwyz is one of the most important museums of cultural history in the Alpine region. It is a modern historical museum where culture and history come together offering visitors a special experience.
The Forum of Swiss History is the cultural seat of the Swiss National Museum in central Switzerland.
The permanent exhibition by the title of ‘Switzerland in the Making. Through the 12th to the 14th Century’ focuses on the foundation and early development of the Old Swiss Confederacy in the Middle Ages. Designed as an adventure tour to address our senses, the exhibition appeals to children and adults alike. The extraordinary scenography over all three floors makes a visit to the museum an event to remember.
The special exhibitions in the basement, which change regularly, are very important for the region and central Switzerland. They take up themes of topical interest and present them in a modern form. A cafeteria and an attractive museum shop complete the range of services available to visitors.
