Naturmuseum Winterthur

At the Nature Museum in Winterthur, discoverers both big and small can explore the fascinating indigenous natural world.

At the Naturmuseum Winterthur, children and adults alike can discover the fascinating realm of indigenous flora and fauna.

The habitat, behavior, and characteristics of animals and plants in Switzerland’s forests are related in an exhibition spread over two floors. Supplemented by concerts, excursions, and workshops on specific themes, the exhibition ensures that a visit here is never boring. The multifaceted permanent exhibition is also accompanied by temporary exhibitions, lectures, guided tours, and events for visitors of all ages.

At the Kerala Children’s Museum, nature is made tangible for the youngest guests: they can listen to stories, make animal masks, crawl into an oversized badger’s sett, or investigate various themed boxes. They also have the opportunity to compare their own finds with the existing collection and have them identified.
