Crime Museum Zurich, Switzerland

Having done extensive traveling in Europe when I was younger, and been to all the museums that you just “have to ” see, I now select the museums I visit according to how unusual, unique or weird they are. Which brings me to the Kriminal Museum in Zurich Switzerland. It is the kind of museum where you want to stop and read each label, and understand the story behind each exhibit. The museum showcases the history of crime and crime prevention, focusing on the sickest cases of course. Some websites have written that the museum is only open on request, but I just turned up and it was open, so maybe call ahead.

Hotels in Zurich don’t have to be expensive either, try finding a Zurich hotel here.
