Museum Burghalde

Art
History and tradition
Lenzburg
Switzerland
The Museum Burghalde exhibits a broad range of pieces – from a Stone-Age hand axe to a machine-made tin. The highlight of the exhibition is the collection of objects from the early Stone Age to early medieval times. Visitors enjoy partly reconstructed houses, settlements and original pieces that present a vivid impression of past times. The grave and cult room hosts the largest exhibited prehistoric grave from the New Stone Age.

The department of local history displays pieces by Lenzburg artisans, such as the furniture of the designers Samuel Hämmerli (father and son), an oven with impressive paintings done by the potter Johann Jacob Frey or beautiful silver pieces from the silversmiths in Lenzburg. The baroque room is famous for its detailed stucco ceiling, while another highlight is to be found in the basement: Professor Hämmerli dedicated his collection of Russian icons from the 16th to 19th century to the museum in the year 2002. The tour through the museum grants many insights into the period when Lenzberg developed into an important industrial area. Companies such as the food enterprise Hero or the toy manufacturer Wisa-Gloria started here.
