Great background of Swiss history. And the interactive part (in the newer building) is fun and very informative.

The contents of the permanent exhibition are great, and very well documented. There are many technologies to help us understanding the history of the country in detail without getting bored. Nonetheless, the self guiding across the different rooms that make the time sequence is sometimes hard. Most of the times the best option is to try all rooms and then see which one is first. The price is adequate for the contents of the entire museum. The architecture of the museum by its own is already worth the visit. You should definitely spend at least 2 hours here when visiting the city.
Great way to spend three hours. The history of Switzerland exhibit is fascinating. I was fortunate enough to see the Anne Frank exhibit as well. There is an original copy of her diary. I also learned that her Uncle (Otto I think) had to redact some of the details that were deemed too graphic for readers. Entry is free with the Swiss Pass, which was an added bonus.
