St. Gallen Culture Museum

Kulturmuseum St. Gallen

The Kulturmuseum St. Gallen owns one of the most important collections of cultural history in eastern Switzerland. One focus is the history of the city and region of St.Gallen (city model, canvas industry). In addition, there is the history of medicine in St.Gallen, Swiss porcelain (18th century) and costumes. Special accents are set by the original historical rooms. The ethnological section allows encounters with ethnic groups around the globe. A considerable part of the objects are donations from St.Gallen residents. With Han Coray and Eduard von der Heydt, two internationally known collectors are represented. "Fascination Archaeology" offers an introduction to the archaeology of the canton and the city. A main theme is the excavations of recent years (Rapperswil, Weesen, St.Gallen Old Town). An interactive laboratory explains how archaeology arrives at its findings. The Kulturmuseum St. Gallen attaches great importance to a rich offer for families and children (children's museum, museum education).
