New Swiss Finance Museum to open in Zurich
June 15, 2017

Zurich is getting a new museum. On June 2017, the new Swiss Finance Museum will open its doors at Pfingstweidstrasse 110. The first of its kind in Switzerland, it combines historical exhibits with state-of-the-art multimedia installations. The museum is located in the new global head office of SIX, the operator of the Swiss financial infrastructure.

SIX says the completely redesigned exhibition introduces visitors to the origins of the banking nation's modern economic system, the Swiss financial market and its infrastructure. Key historical pieces from one of the world's biggest and most important collections of historical securities allow visitors to trace the development of our modern financial economy all the way back to the 16th century.

The exhibition focuses on illustrating the dynamic relationship between the financial industry and industrialization throughout history as well as the significance of the Swiss financial market for daily life across generations.
