The Natur-Museum, Luzern (Kasernenplatz 6, 6003) will once again be hosting their Easter chick exhibition, which runs from 29. March to 8. April. This year however the exhibition will be less ‘hands-on’ as due to changes made to Swiss animal welfare legislation on 1st January 2018 visitors are no longer permitted to handle the chicks! But you can still witness close up when the egg shell breaks open, the chick hatches and when the baby chick takes it’s first steps into chicken life! This is entertainment for all ages! Entrance costs CHF 8.- for adults and CHF 3.- for children (aged 6 to 16). For more information click here.

Her visit to Switzerland was during her period of seclusion when she was in deep mourning for Prince Albert. She made the journey partly in remembrance of her husband who had visited in 1837 and had been enthusiastic about the country.
