Member of EXARC since

Museum Burghalde offers open and creative access to 15,000 years of history and culture. We collect and preserve stories, cultural treasures and memories, maintain and combine them, and make them accessible to a broad public in exhibitions, events and workshops.

The new permanent exhibition was opened in 2018. Archaeological highlights include Neolithic stone box graves and finds from the Unesco World Heritage Pile Dwellings. Our museum is well known for its wide range of stone age programs for school classes. Our ancient history workshop and its outdoor area give school classes the opportunity to become further immersed in the Stone Age and re-enact past ways of life. The prehistory workshop is run by Jonas Nyffeler, curator for the archaeological exhibition. 

Since 2020, the Museum Burghalde of Lenzburg is lead by the art historian and arts manager Dr. Marc Philip Seidel.
