Nostalgic, charming and very large – Our famous nativity scene in the DIORAMA enchants with over 450 hand-carved figures on 80 m2. The magnificent pieces are almost 100 years old.
A crib? Yes! - What makes it unique is the attention to detail: the almost lifelike figures, the clothing, architecture, the large water wheel, hand mills and plough show the ancient town of Bethlehem.

The seamless transition from the plastic landscape to the painted background creates the perfect illusion of an endless scenery. Great care was put on creating an exact copy of the environs of Bethlehem and to represent the birth of Christ according to biblical tradition.

We also house the private mineral collection of the Dr. Adelrich Eberle from Einsiedeln: 1,200 eye-catching pieces from all over the world, from Alpine quartz to magnificent crystals from South America and China. A special feature is our fluorescence cabinet: In ultraviolet light some minerals, which are rather inconspicuous in daylight, reveal a fantastic, undreamt-of splendour of colour.

Changing exhibitions on “Special Objects”. Special offers for groups and schools. Guided Tours. Museum shop and small visitor café.
