“Interesting display about Einstein's life”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

It's a small museum in the apartment occupied by Einstein and his wife when they lived in Bern. He lived in Bern for about 7 years (not all in this apartment) but published many of his important papers during that period.

The Museum shows the rooms they had. Posters and photos on the wall describe his life much more than the scientific principles. I suppose if you read the biographies you will learn as much or more, but I still found it interesting.

The entrance is a bit hard to find, it's just a doorway in the apartment building, without a large sign.

“Probably not worth it...”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

It was somewhat interesting to see where he lived in Bern, although the furnishings aren't really his but from that period. The displays were nothing you couldn't find in a book. Not on the Swiss pass - unusual for Swiss museums - so it was kind of expensive.

“Really Cool”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

We are science nerds and loved every second of this little museum. Although our Swissrail provides free entrance to most museums, it only provided a discount here, but worth the four and one half francs it cost (after a discount of 2 francs). Don't miss the video, which can be viewed in several languages depending on the button you push. The cafe next door sells inexpensive buttons and pins for the kids 1 franc each, rather than the pricier things in the museum.
