Culture and Museums

Kultur und Museen

The canton of Glarus has many museums and exhibitions. Best known are the Museum des Landes Glarus in the Freulerpalast Näfels, which relates the history and culture of Glarnerland; the Landesbibliothek in Glarus with many historical documents and the Kunsthaus Glarus in the Volksgarten, with varying exhibitions and an art library. A visit to the former shale mine and Landesplattenberg in Engi is particularly exciting: you get the opportunity to work on shale yourself. This is only a small selection of the museums and exhibits that surprise visitors over and over again.
