Museum DIORAMA Einsiedeln

All important info for the on-site visit

The Museum

Ein bemerkenswertes, kleines Museum!

Entdecken Sie zwei Ausstellungen unter einem Dach: Unsere berühmte Krippe bezaubert mit über 450 handgeschnitzten Figuren auf 80 m2. Die prächtigen Figuren sind fast 100 Jahre alt. - Eine Krippe? Ja! Was sie einzigartig macht, ist die Detailtreue in der Umsetzung: Die fast lebensechten Gestalten, die Kleidung, Architektur, das grosse Wasserschöpfrad, Handmühlen und Pflug zeigen in einer geografisch naturgetreuen Landschaft die Stadt Bethlehem und ein lebendiges Bild des Lebens zur Zeit der Geburt von Jesus.

Im gleichen Haus zeigen wir die fantastische Mineralien-Sammlung von Dr. Adelrich Eberle aus Einsiedeln: 1‘200 prächtige Exponate aus aller Welt, vom Alpen-Quarz bis zu Kristallen aus Südamerika und China. Eine Besonderheit bildet das Fluoreszenzkabinett: Im ultra­violetten Licht offenbaren einige Mineralien, die im Tageslicht eher unscheinbar daherkommen, eine phantastische, ungeahnte Farbenpracht. Man nennt dies Fluoreszenz.

Regelmässig kleine Sonderschauen zu ’Besonderen Objekten'. Spezielle Angebote für Gruppen und Schulen. Museums-Shop und kleines Besucher-Café.
