The Bernisches Historisches Museum (Bern Historical Museum) is home to some of the city’s most important treasures. The museum’s exhibits focus on the history of Bern, but there are also artefacts from other parts of the world including Asia, the Americas, Oceania and Egypt. One of the museum’s highlights is its exhibit on the life and work of Albert Einstein, who developed his theory of relativity while living in Bern.
