Albert Einstein (1879–1955) was living in Bern in 1905 when his theory of relativity turned our perceptions of space and time upside down. The Einstein Museum at the Bernisches Historisches Museum celebrates this memorable event. Elaborately staged original objects as well as written documents and films outline the biography of the genius while they, at the same time, illustrate the major topics of his time. Aspects from Albert Einstein’s private and working life are dealt with and reveal the person behind the genius. The discoveries the scientist made in physics are explained by means of easy-to understand animations. His love affairs, his commitment to the cause of nuclear disarmament in his later years and other personal insights paint a comprehensive picture of Albert Einstein as a person.
