This is a small museum in Einstein's home. It is 3 stories with story boards on the walls explaining his personal and professional life. It is interesting. There is also a little theater with a movie about his life.

The Einstein House is a tiny museum in the center of the Bern Old Town. It was Einstein's apartment, preserved much as it was when he lived there. This is where he developed the special theory of relativity, and where he was living during his "miracle year" in 1905, when he published 5 papers revolutionizing physics.

The visit includes a short video. The receptionist at the museum sits at Einsteins patent office desk. If you are an Einstein fan, you will love this place. If not, it probably won't impress you.

There is a separate, and more comprehensive Einstein exhibit at the Bern Historical Museum near the Kirchenfeldbrucke. This has much more information on his life, times, and scientific achievements. This is worth visiting too.

We visited the Einstein house in our first day in Bern. While interesting, the cost is 6CHF/adult. The staff is very nice and takes a few minutes to explain what to do/where things are. The apt is one small room with minimal artifacts that could be labeled or explained better. Going up another set of stairs, there is a room with a movie playing and a curated display/timeline of Einsteins life. The coffee bar at the street level is perhaps a better use of your CHF.

While there was a great deal of interesting stuff in the Einstein Haus, it was minimally kept and it was difficult to follow it in a way that one may be able to appreciate his time in Switzerland. I could barely figure out what to take a picture of. Tickets were 6 Francs/person (adults) - cheaper for students and seniors and kids. The displays were informative but it was hard to stand there and read in a cramped space while others around you wanted to walk around and see as well. The place is small and I wish it was decorated more accurately to simulate how Einstein really lived there. There was simply a dining room design in the apartment. There was a video that was playing, which was informative and probably the best part of the Einstein Haus. The apartment is 2 floors above and does not seem to be disabled/stroller-friendly. If you have little kids or are traveling with old or disabled people, it can be difficult to climb up the stairs. There was so little to see and focus on that I was literally out in 15 minutes.

We enjoyed the extremely informative 20 minute video that can be played in English. The rest was a little dense for my vacation brain.
