Key facts

The Swiss National Museum (SNM) has a mandate under the Museums and Collections Act (MusCA) to preserve and exhibit Swiss cultural heritage. It does this within the framework of its activities of collecting and organising exhibitions. The SNM is made up of the National Museum Zurich, the Château de Prangins, the Forum of Swiss History in Schwyz and the Collection Centre in Affoltern am Albis. Every year, the SNM receives a federal contribution of around CHF 30 million, plus around CHF 20 million for accommodation. The SNM has been a federal institution under public law since 2010. It is supervised by the General Secretariat of the Federal Department of Home Affairs.
