An excellent introduction to the national park, with it's history, ecology, geology and zoology (a bit less botany) presented in a interesting and accessible way that obviously please both adults and children. The museum itself is not very large but packed with cleverly designed stands...More

An informative series of exhibits about the geology and ecology of the national park, with good videos and excellent displays on the animal life in particular.

Before visiting the national park this museum gives a lot of useful information about the nature and history of it. You can have an audio guide (in several languages) and take the tour in your own pace by just entering the numbers at each item.

So many wonderful walks and if you're lucky you get to see a marmot, a chamois or just listening to the twitter of birds.

We liked that there was an audio guide in English. The exhibits represented what you would find within the park….flora, fauna, the different types of rock that make up the mountains and the seasonal changes…all were well done and easy to understand.
