On nature’s trail – the Natural History Museum Bern is one of the most renowned in Switzerland. Its historic exhibitions of native and exotic animals are unique in Europe and are the reasons for the museum’s international reputation.
Bern’s oldest museum has made a name for itself in recent years by holding attractive thematic exhibitions, such as the new exhibition “Apocalypse – End Without End”. One of the museum’s best-known exhibits is Barry, the world-famous rescue dog, a St. Bernard who recently had an entire exhibition dedicated to him. The giant Planggenstock crystals now permanently on display are another highlight. The NMBE is a family museum and runs numerous activities for families and children. It also hosts unusual events for visitors of all ages such as a “The bar of dead animals”, which is part of a programme series entitled “Help, it lives!”.
