Summer resorts and climate change, mountain farmers and glacial retreat, tourism and second homes: The Swiss Alpine Museum uses unconventional approaches to address current issues affecting mountains around the world. The ensuing debate connects the cultural, scientific, business, social and political sectors. The museum acts as an interactive platform that raises questions and then discusses them. Exhibitions, events and projects all address the differing perspectives.
At “las alps”, the museum’s own restaurant, visitors are treated to delicious lunch menus, relaxed Sunday brunch from October to April and – upon request – evening cocktail parties. The museum can also be booked for private events and banquets. Find out more here.

The museum stages exciting special exhibitions and hosts diverse events all focused on the theme of mountains. Currently, the following exhibitions and activities invite you to ponder, relax and share experiences.
Alpine Workshop. The Artisans.
What does it mean to manufacture a product by hand in a digital and globalised society? How much manual labour can still be found in modern-day products such as violins, skis, shoes, and cheese? For its current main exhibition, the Swiss Alpine Museum has been transformed into a workshop until 10 january 2021, encouraging visitors to reflect on tensions between alpine producers and urban consumers, between conscious tradition and necessary innovation.
