From potato peelers to rockets

Whether the mustard tube, aluminium foil, Nescafé or Voltaren – countless everyday Swiss inventions and brands have conquered the world. Some of them are now on display at the new Swiss Brand Museum in Berne. The small premises near the bear park in a former toll house, which is UNESCO-protected, opened last April.

The permanent exhibition at the Swiss Brand Museum in Berne displays 22 Swiss inventions.

    I visited it in September. It is both educational and entertaining. Delightful and creative displays.
