Recently opened Zurich-based Swiss Finance Museum, owner of one of the largest collections of international historic securities worldwide, is the first museum in Switzerland exclusively dedicated to
financial topics and the country’s history as an important international financial centre. “While we are proud of the outstanding size of our collection, the Swiss Finance Museum’s concept goes far beyond the mere display of these securities,” points out Andrea Weidemann, director at the Swiss Finance Museum. Broadly speaking, the museum is focused on the global economy of the 16th to 21st century. “Finances have always been an important part of society. Visitors to our museum want to understand about the development and the history of this particular line of business.
