The ticket cost 10 CHF, which is very, very small compared to other museums. The museum tells about Switzerland, there are a lot of things, but it seemed to me, somehow, unstructured, something, well, for me personally. I can't explain it, but a lot of things don't even have a memory. I really liked the interactive display of important geographical objects on the 3D model of the mountain range. You take one of the four smartphones, you choose what you want to see, you point it at the model, and you get rivers, mountains, the St. Gotthard Tunnel, the cantons, the cities. In any case, I would advise to visit this museum, as it will allow you to get some initial knowledge about the history of a beautiful country called Switzerland.
