Permanent exhibition

Journey through the permanent exhibition

A journey of discovery through the Castle with its many nooks and crannies and small rooms offers a variety of insights into the cultural history of Zug. Inspired by the changing ambiences, the creators of the exhibition chose a seperate topic for each room and they all offer different experiences to the Castle's visitors. Objects from the collections, interactive stations, short texts and various questions asked by a little girl called Lili provide a vast array of exciting and interesting information about the lives of the people that lived in Zug over the past five hundred years. Atmospheric stagings and even a controversial love affair invite visitors to delve into the past. Design your own wallpaper, play a game with an old deck of cards or look at a model of Zug to track the rapid development of the city from a sleepy fishing village to an industrial and commercial centre of international renown. The permanent exhibition was created in 2013 to celebrate the museum's 30-year anniversary.

In the interest of safety the permanent exhibition incl. the children’s storey can only be visited by a maximum of 50 persons at any given time.
