Liechtenstein National Museum

Dating back to 1438, the building which today houses the Liechtenstein National Museum has a long and varied history.

The building - today part of the former Administrator's House - has acted as the princely tavern, a customs house and the seat of the government over the many centuries of its existence. Between 1998 and 2008 work was carried out to renovate the building and extend it towards the mountain slope that is home to Vaduz Castle.

As a matter of interest, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe visited the tavern on his travels in 1788.

The Liechtenstein National Museum displays many artefacts describing the history of Liechtenstein and also contains a natural history collection.
