Description

The World Nature Forum in Naters is the visitor centre of the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch and at the same time the most modern museum in the Alps. In the interactive exhibition, visitors experience the World Heritage Site with all their senses and immerse themselves in the exciting and diverse Alpine world. Exciting films, interactive experience stations, information graphics and the latest technology awaken the spirit of research in young and old. The exhibition is an experience for ages from three to 99 years!

The highlight of the exhibition is the large panorama room, where fascinating film scenes from the UNESCO World Heritage Site thrill visitors on a 100 square metre screen.
