Guided Tour

History of Switzerland – Women in Focus

| accessibility.time_to

For centuries, Swiss women were excluded from civil and political rights despite being a pillar of society. What roles have women played over the last 500 years? Why was the road to women’s suffrage in Switzerland so rocky, and what has changed since its introduction in 1971? The guided tour draws attention to the interconnections permeating the history of women, sheds light on the current situation and takes a look into the future.

The exhibition

Key visual of the "History of Switzerland" exhibition

The 1,000-m2 Swiss history exhibition depicts how Switzerland came to be over a period of 550 years. The tour through the centuries begins in the late Middle Ages and ends with the challenges facing democratic institutions in the present. The exhibition illustrates the journey from a confederation of states to a federal state as a struggle for identity. In addition, it crosses a time boundary that is often considered taboo for historical museums: It dares to examine contemporary history.
