Discount with the Tell-Pass: 20% on single admission

The Bourbaki Panorama (10 × 112 m, originally 14 × 112 m) was painted by Edouard Castres (1838–1902) in Geneva in 1881. Castres, a Red Cross volunteer during the war, realistically depicted the misery of war, thereby revealing his zealous commitment to peace. Ferdinand Hodler was also part of his painting team. In 1889, the Bourbaki Panorama was transferred to Lucerne. As in a hidden-object picture (Wimmelbild), numerous individual fates are depicted in the enormous painting. The award-winning “My Bourbaki Panorama” app allows visitors to immerse themselves in the history and everyday life of these “little people”. The app is available in English/ German/ French. The Tablets needed for using the App will be provided by the Bourbaki Panorama.
