How did the Romans live 2,000 years ago on the territory of present-day Switzerland? What did they eat? What weapons and clothes did they wear? For more than 100 years, archaeologists in the Brugg/Windisch area have been researching the site where the only legionary camp on the territory of present-day Switzerland once stood.
Largest collection of Roman writing tablets
The Vindonissa Museum shows original objects from these excavations in its permanent exhibition. It presents life and everyday routines in the legionary camp in various thematic areas and features the world's largest collection of Roman wooden writing tablets.
The centrepiece of the exhibition is a three-dimensional model of the legionary camp, which gives a detailed view of the inside. With films, audio stories and games, the exhibition offers an interactive exploration of the Roman past of the Brugg/Windisch region.
The texts in the permanent exhibition are translated into English.
