The Alpineum is a museum and diorama of the Alps in Lucerne, Switzerland.
In 1885, Ernst Hodel senior purchased the building that formerly housed the Lion-Monument-Museum. His plan was to make a permanent exhibition of the large scale landscape paintings of the Alps that he loved. With the help of his son Ernst Hodel junior, he realized a series depicting the Alps, which debuted in May 1901 under the name Alpineum. The paintings occupy a surface of more than five hundred square meters, offering beautiful and unique insight into the world of the Swiss Alps.

Lion of Lucerne, is a rock relief in Lucerne, Switzerland, designed by Bertel Thorvaldsen and hewn in 1820–21 by Lukas Ahorn. It commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution, when revolutionaries stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris.

Place which deserves a visit because it is the first panopticon installation in a museum.

A little bit special museum and be a scenic spot conjunct to lowendenkmal.

Not enough effort to involve people like audio guides or better showcases for the stereoscopes, although the stereoscope collection is to die for!

Nice but too expensive (CHF 8) for what it is. It is clearly run down. It could be improved.
