Created in 1979 and in its current location since 1989, the Swiss Camera Museum is based on the market square next to the lake. It traces the history of photography and cameras in two narrow, four-storey buildings connected by a footbridge and an underground tunnel. The museum will be of interest to adults initiated by photography.
