  • This circular diorama portrays the hardships of war from the 19th century...while it isn't the most advanced painting you'll see, its definitely interesting to see and gives you some sense of what it....  more »
  • We really enjoyed the panorama it highlighted a period of history that we were unfamiliar with it must have been an amazing spectacle for the original viewers  more »

  • It's one of my favorite museums. An exceptional form of seeing a historical scene, the internement of French soldiers who fled to Switzerland in 1871. The first big challenge for the Red Cross, which was founded shortly before. And for Switzerland, it was an incredible effort to deal with nearly 90000 solders, feed them, care for them. Therefore, the Bourbaki Panorama is much more then just a painting. It's part of European culture and history. And you cover it with a 30' visit, so as well suitable with kids or people in a hurry.
  • Not too many panoramic paintings left. Nicely restored painting depicting the surrender of French troops in the Franco-Prussian conflict in 1870-1871. The restored painting now includes some 3D displays to help bring the painting to life. Very good display of some early photography methods. Easy walk and on the way to the Lion.
