This was one of the most interesting museums I've visited while traveling. The Swiss history museum was impeccably designed and they took great care in how they displayed the relics and various artifacts.This is a wonderful building. Totally beautiful on the outside and very well done on the inside also. The story of Einstein was beautifully done and coupled with the history of Bern
If you love enistien like me this is a must place to visit. I drove about an hour to get to this place it was all worth it. You get to see lots of fun things about him and see his watch his book and things he wrote. The only thing that sucks is they need lot of souvenirs to sell for tourist. I wanted to buy but I was only able to buy a kitchen magnet which I was happy with.
