If you are in Schaffhausen, this museum is definitely worth visiting. It presents the local history through interesting exhibits and artifacts. Take a pleasant stroll through the medieval herb garden and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

This museum of local history, from the Stone Age onwards. Is a model of what a local museum can be. The material is superbly displayed and clearly explained, although not in English.
