Switzerland ranks among the countries with the most museums per capita, with more than 1,000 museums to suit nearly every taste.
From housing small, regional collections of historical artefacts to the architecturally stunning Paul Klee Centre dedicated to one of Switzerland’s best-known artists, the number of museums has grown considerably in the last 60 years.
The Swiss National Museum, which is actually three museums, offers permanent exhibitions on Swiss cultural history from the country’s earliest days to the present.
In Lucerne, the Swiss Museum of Transport offers a history of moving from point A to B with whimsical, interactive and informative exhibitions.
