  • As ornithologist, you may be surprised by the large collection if bird skins this Museum guard in its cabinets. Astonish collections of South American birds, especially the trogonids.

  • Having been introduced to Fondation Barry in Locarno earlier in the year (the actual property is located in Martigny, near Lac Leman) is was nice to see the legendary Great St Bernard's exhibition...

  • Great museum and recommended. Just one warning that parking is very limited in the neighborhood around the museum. If you are able to walk or bike, it's a good idea 👍
  • Most of the collection is composed by embalmed animals, you will also find some skeletons and many animals conserved in formaldehyde. The temporary exhibitions were very good and are worth the visit, one of them was not translated into English though.
