Discover the National Park in an unusual way, with new perspectives from the wildest corners of the park and a fascinating acoustic experience.
Interactive stations provide interesting insights into selected research projects. In a lively production, you will learn exciting facts about key moments in the history of this wilderness area. But what about your own ideas of wilderness? How would wilderness develop if you could determine it? These questions run like a thread through the entire exhibition and finally lead to an unexpected finale. Got curious? Let us surprise you!

5 languages (DE/FR/IT/RM/EN) and age-appropriate mediation:
The new National Park exhibition is an experience for everybody. An audio guide in five languages, adapted to different target or age groups, accompanies you through the exhibition rooms. Children up to the age of 12 follow the absent-minded Ratsch and the clever Furbina on their adventurous journey through the exhibition. The youngest visitors discover the National Park Center at play stations specially signposted for them.

The exhibition was planned and realized by the scenographers of Groenlandbasel in close cooperation with the communication team of the Swiss National Park.
