The visit to this museum exceeded all expectations! I did not know that the museum is very large and includes a separate building, which has the treasures of Liechtenstein. Furthermore there are diverse exhibitions on each floor. I liked all of these as they are really cool! I advise you to take an audio guide and spend more than two hours to fully enjoy it. Moreover, one floor is dedicated to the history of football, so football fans should definitely give this place a chance. Thank you for such an interesting place!
The National Museum found in 1972 a permanent location here, formerly home to the stately tavern. It is very large and distributed on 3 floors. The permanent exhibition focuses on the history and culture of Liechtenstein, but there are also items from the archaeological and natural history collections. The museum hosts a range of temporary exhibitions as well.
A lovely discovery: not too large but not too small, enough to fill our 2hrs in a very enjoyable way if you find yourself in Vaduz. This may be an one off opportunity to pet a wolf :D Make sure you check out the temporary exhibition about Pompeii - informative, lively and very interesting. There's also a charming self-service cafeteria with unbeatable prices.
Enjoyable walk round on 2 sides. Has self-service cafè including outdoor seating and toilet facilities.
Outstanding experience for anyone who is willing to learn about the history of Liechenstein. The National Museum comprises 3 full floors of exhibition rooms (main building), as well as the Treasury Museum, located in the Post Mail Museum building a few meters away. The ground floor is dedicated to temporary expositions, when we visited (in the Winter) they had thousands of vintage Christmas decorations made mostly out of glass, brass, and cart board. It was quite impressive to say the least. There is also a section dedicated to football history in this floor. On the 1st and 2nd floors, you can find dozens of artifacts and their descriptions, you can also learn more about highlight entries through the Audio Guide, by typing the respective codes. The guides can be requested at the reception in different languages, eg. English. The entry costs 10€ per ticket. Overall, it took us around 2 hours to check the entire museum and explore the history of Liechenstein. We had a very interesting afternoon at this museum, as they have contents for beginners who know nothing much about the country's past, as well as unique artefacts like thousands of years old coins and manuscripts. It's surely worth visiting if you come to Lichenstein!
