When Albert Einstein (1879–1955) lived in the Swiss city of Bern, he came up with a revolutionary theory that changed our perception of time and space forever. A good hundred years later, the Einstein Museum in Bern offers a unique insight into the life and work of the famous scientist. Located within the museum complex Bernisches Historisches Museum, the Einstein exhibition space was originally set up in 2005 for the 100-year- anniversary of Albert Einstein’s special theory of relativity. Due to its phenomenal success, the temporary exhibition was then converted into a permanent one now known as the Einstein Museum. “The visitors start their tour at the staggering mirror staircase,” explains Merja Rinderli, head of marketing and communication.
