Visitors who head to Langnau in Switzerland’s Emmental can look forward to one of the largest existing museums with local history collections. Situated in an exceptionally preserved building from 1526, the regional museum Chuechlihus not only impresses with its special ambiance, but also with diverse exhibitions. “We distinguish ourselves from other regional museums with our size, as well as our collection’s comprehensiveness. Amongst the small museums, we are one of the biggest. In over 25 rooms, we present more than 20 topics and each year, a temporary special exhibition is brought to life,” notes Madeleine Ryser, museum director. Founded in 1930, the museum was established to give a voice to the Langnau region, an economic and cultural centre of the upper Emmental.
