The permanent exhibition of the Thun Panorama titled '360°' gives an insight into the origin of the oldest preserved cyclorama of the world. The two century-old history of the panorama is presented in four interactive chapters and spotlights the ambitious little master from Basel by the name of Marquard Wocher, and the adventurous circumstances under which the painting ended up in Schaudaupark. The exhibition on the ground floor can be looked at, touched, heard and it even invites you to play. It takes up different topics and thus also presents the background of the panorama medium together with its miracle of perception and the visual experiences. With small stories, sometimes humorous and sometimes sad, it also provides a glimpse into the history of Thun and its environment and tells, for instance, the tragic story of a silk factory, whose traces can be found even today in the name Maulbeerkreis (mulberry circle).
