Einstein Museum

Accompany Albert Einstein on his life's journey and learn about the brilliant physicist in all his facets. 

Albert Einstein (1879–1955) was living in Bern when his theory of relativity turned our perceptions of space and time upside down. As part of the Bernisches Historisches Museum, approximately 1000m² of exhibition space in the Einstein Museum offer an account of the life of the physicist. Some 550 original objects and replicas, 70 films and numerous animations outline the biography of the genius and his ground-breaking discoveries, while at the same time illustrating the history of his time. 

Both private and professional aspects of Einstein's life are dealt with and show the person behind the genius. Romantic relationships and dramas are covered, as is the fascinating world of the 1920s. Other central themes include the horror of the Holocaust and the dropping of the atom bomb on Hiroshima.

An audio guide in nine languages, inductive headphones and a video guide for the deaf and hearing-impaired (available in Swiss German only) make the Einstein Museum accessible to a wider audience from all parts of the world.
