Description and special features

The Museum zu Allerheiligen, located in the picturesque old town of Schaffhausen, brings together archaeology, history, art, and natural history under one roof. With its extensive permanent exhibitions and several temporary exhibitions every year, it presents a wide variety of topics in an attractive and accessible manner. Interdisciplinary special exhibitions encourage visitors to engage with current cultural and scientific questions.

A large part of the museum is housed in the former Allerheiligen Benedictine monastery. Like the monastery, the museum is a place of knowledge, culture, and encounters. The name Museum zu Allerheiligen alludes to the universality of the medieval monastery and expresses the diversity of the branches of knowledge represented here.

The location and the architecture, which span 1000 years of history, are an integral part of the museum’s exhibits. The museum grounds also include the impressive cathedral, the idyllic herb garden, and the largest cloister open to the public in Switzerland. All this makes for a very special atmosphere for visitors to the museum.
