Exhibitions

The National Museum in Liechtenstein houses a permanent exhibition focusing on the history, culture and landscape of the Principality of Liechtenstein. It also hosts special exhibitions. Visitors to the three main buildings will find 42 exhibit rooms spread across almost 2000 square metres.

The Postal Museum and the Treasure Chamber in Vaduz as well as the Farmhouse Museum in Schellenberg are also affiliated to the National Museum. The Postal Museum showcases the story of philately and the postal service in Liechtenstein, while the Treasur Chamber focuses primarily on exhibits belonging to the Princes of Liechtenstein and other private collectors. The Farmhouse Museum offers an insight into life in the Principality around 1900.

Permanent exhibition

Opened in 2003, the permanent exhibition on show in the main building complex of the National Museum focuses on six main themes centred around human activities: ‘settling’ (in particular, archaeology), ‘protecting’ (Middle Ages), ‘ruling’ (modern times), ‘celebrating’ (traditions), ‘working’ (life in the 19th – 21st century) and ‘using’ (natural history). Each section comprises a large number of objects, including one key exhibit.
