Beautiful museum, lots of interactive displays, movies to watch, and the special exhibit "Wagner in cartoons". The grounds are well kept, nice place to have a picnic right along the lake.

It was beautiful to walk around the grounds of this home on the lake, but don't pay to tour the museum itself unless you are a Wagner enthusiast. Not much to see inside the house itself. Covered with Swiss Travel Pass. Limited accessibility by boat...More
