Museum of Communication

The museum will be temporarily closed for conversion works until March 2017.

The Museum of Communication is the only museum in Switzerland to be dedicated exclusively and interactively to the history of interhuman communication.

The range extends from body language and dialogue between different cultures to the exchange of information via the old and new media: postal services and telecommunications, radio and television, computer and the Internet.

The permanent exhibitions tell exciting stories about our daily relations. Amazing interactive installations with virtual scenes and entertaining games encourage exchanges and encounters. The museum focuses on man, placing him at the very heart of the pressing issues which concern us at the beginning of the new millennium.
