Guided tours

Due to official regulations, entry to the Collections Centre is only permitted with a valid COVID certificate recognised in Switzerland. Please present your certificate along with your official identification when entering. Children and young people up to the age of 16 are exempt. Young people between the ages of 12 and 16 without a certificate are required to wear a mask throughout the premises.

In individual group tours, staff of the Swiss National Museum Collections Centre will take you behind the scenes. Tours focus on the huge variety of objects and their histories, the conservation demands with regard to the cultural assets held by our museums, and the management of the objects in our custody. Visitors are given a fascinating look behind the scenes in the conservation and restoration workshops and the conservation research laboratory. Requests for specific topics to be covered will be accommodated as far as possible.
