Sammlungszentrum Augusta Raurica: Open Days
We'd like to extend a warm invitation to the public to visit our brand-new »Sammlungszentrum« on 12 and 13 May 2023.
In addition to a tour of the new building and a smartphone treasure hunt, visitors can enjoy a guided tour of the collections store.
Friday 12 May 15-19:00 and Saturday 13 May 10-17:00
Schwarzackerstrasse 2, 4302 Augst, Switzerland
- Tour: With information from staff members
The tour takes visitors around the new building, where they will see several offices belonging to all departments. Augusta Raurica's archaeologists, restorers, excavation teams, researchers, and other staff members will present their work, introduce their professions and answer your questions. The tour takes around 60 minutes and begins at the visitor's entrance.
- Smartphone treasure hunt
Those who want to can take part in a smartphone treasure hunt, searching for clues, solving problems and exploring the building.
- Guided tours of the collections store
You will have the opportunity to visit the collections store, which has space for more than 2 million objects and is usually off-limits to the public. The collection is currently in the process of being moved. However, the high shelves in the foyer, which are already filled with large architectural pieces, are pretty impressive. Guided tours of the collections store are conducted regularly in German. Each tour has a maximum of 15 people, and visitors can sign up on site.
