I really expected to see St Bernard dogs (the fluffy ones like I saw at Rigi Kulm). These were nothing like that. The experience of the Museum was interesting - that is, if you are interested in a museum about dogs. For a fee you...More

Need about an hour to look about the museum and grounds. Exhibits on prehistory, Roman times, nature and development on the road over the pass. Wonderful drive, but not for those who get car sick. Hundreds of turns.
