The family exhibition lets children immerse themselves in the world of picture books and adults indulge in the memory of their own picture books.
Switzerland looks back on a long tradition of picture books. Pitschi, Joggeli, Globi, and Schellen-Ursli are just some of the figures to have delighted generations of readers. The family exhibition allows adults to look back on beloved picture books of their own childhood, while explanations concerning the conditions under which the books were written and illustrated shed light on a number of societal issues as well as aspects of the history of education and the development of graphics.

One thing is for sure, the children won’t be bored: we have a “Joggeli” tree for picking pears, Globi’s postal coach where kids can paint and play, Schellen-Ursli’s old Engadin farmhouse where they can dress up, as well as Pitschi the cat’s large featherbed. In other words, there is something for everyone, young and old alike. Not to mention the pile of picture books ready for you to browse through.

The exhibition also offers a rich supporting programme that serves the interests of both grown-ups and kids. Adults can learn more about the background to a wide scope of topics in a range of expert guided tours, while family guided tours, puppet shows, and story afternoons provide ample opportunities for amusement for children as well as their carers.
