National Museum Zurich 125 Years
31 May 2023
The National Museum Zurich celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2023. The anniversary provides the occasion to look back on the museum’s eventful past and, at the same time, cast a glance into the future. The highlight of the celebrations is the anniversary weekend on 10 and 11 June with a programme for the public.
This anniversary weekend offers a diverse programme with exhibitions, workshops and special guided tours. There will be short “time journeys” into the past.
A glimpse into the future is provided by the intervention “1898-2023-2148”, which can be seen exclusively on the anniversary weekend. Four school classes from the four language regions present objects from their everyday lives that could be seen in the museum in 125 years.
The Saturday evening will end on a sensual note with a concert by Swiss musician Marius Bear in the museum courtyard. The National Museum dedicates Sunday to families.
