Coffee, cake, lunch

Come and enjoy our cosy Pavillon Café right next to the museum, near Helvetiaplatz square, and try some of our homemade specialities with a cup of coffee. From Tuesday to Friday, our catering team prepare a variety of soups, salads and quiches as well as our popular dish of the day which is available at lunchtime. At weekends we offer a pared-down menu of quiches, a soup of the day and a selection of fresh pretzel sandwiches.

We know where all our potatoes, carrots and other vegetables are grown – in a bid to ensure a maximum of flavour, we source all our fresh produce locally from the Iseli family in Täuffelen.

The Pavillon Café is open from 10 am to 5 pm Tuesday to Sunday.

Rush hour

Unfortunately, space is limited in our Pavillon Café. We therefore recommend that you book your table early (10 persons max.) – particularly for lunch.


We kindly request that you do not bring your own food and drinks into the Pavillon Café. You are welcome to have your picnic on the red chairs and at the wooden tables in the museum forecourt.

Groups and schools (10 persons max.)

For organisational reasons we request that you book your visit in advance. Unfortunately, groups without bookings cannot be admitted.
