Forum der Schweizer Geschichte is the museum of the history of Switzerland, right in the centre of Schwyz. You may see there, how the people of Switzerland had lived between 1300 and 1800. It is an inter-actice museum, offering workshops, audio-visual informations and computer-programs in order to learn about history of the area and all of Switzerland.
The building itself used to be a store-house for wheat and weapons in the middle-ages and was turned into a modern museum last century.
