Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Worth seeing for the Faberge eggs if nothing else. Not very big so don't plan on spending a lot of time. Combine it with the Liechtenstein museum

Treasures, like beauty, are in the eye of the beholder. Some of the "treasures" were very beautiful, but I've seen things just as nice in museums across Europe that were just part of their normal collection. The security of the room made it feel like you were visiting a place with extremely valuable objects, but most of the things seemed almost common by museum standards. The Faberge and other eggs, however, were pretty spectacular.

Not worth it if the entrance is not included with something other. Not that big but there are some interesting things. You're not allowed to take photos :(

It might be expensive if you are paying only for this visit but we paid 10 as student for national museum and the treasure place.
Really Nice and securized

A very small and underwhelming collection. I appreciate the country is small, however I have visited many other incredibly impressive treasuries globally hence the low score. I think entrance fee is high (even the reduced entry of 6 Francs) for the size of the exhibition.

This was a very worth while visit. You must get a "coin" for entry from the postal museum. You enter a darkened chamber with pictures on the walls, glass vases with Faberge eggs, military weaponry, crown jewels. Took about an hour looking at all the displays. Used the english guide book. Guard in room made us put back packs and umbrella on the floor. Not suitable for young children

We got the combination ticket for this and the national museum and were bot disappointed. This collection is small but exquisite and kept in a rather exciting secure room. The Fabergé eggs are a serious highlight.

My teenage daughter was keen to visit the Treasure Chamber – at CHF8 each my son and I thought we could live without the visit. However, on going to purchase our entrance token at the next door postal museum we were happy to note that under 16’s are free and students are only CHF5!

We marched off with our tokens and followed the entrance instructions. My daughter, being enthusiastic, went first and inserted her token…….the door swung open and she entered what looked like a lift. The door then closed on her and another swung open, disgorging her into pitch darkness with the ghostly face of the security guard lit in the far corner of the room – how she did not scream I do not know! I was second through the Narnia wardrobe and my eyes took some adjusting so I stood absolutely still until my daughter grabbed me! Once reunited, we groped our way to the stand holding the museum guides in various languages. Do pick up a guide as it enhances the experience if you understand the significance of the treasures.

The Liechtenstein Treasure Chamber focuses primarily on exhibits belonging to the Princes of Liechtenstein and other private collectors.

Thanks to the generosity of the Princely Family, visitors can admire a number of items from the Collections. With over 800 years of tradition, the Princely Family of Liechtenstein is not only one of the oldest ruling families in the world but also the owner of one of the world’s oldest and continually expanding collections dating back more than 400 years. Its paintings by the Old Masters and array of arms are world-famous. The exhibition displays a selection of valuable materials, weapons, hunting knives and gifts presented by kings and emperors, such as Frederick the Great and Emperor Joseph II, to the Princes of Liechtenstein. We were very taken with a gauntlet dated in the 1500’s.

The museum also showcases exhibits belonging to the Liechtenstein collector Adulf Peter Goop, who donated his significant collection to the Principality in 2010. A Highlight includes his famous collection of Easter eggs – the most diverse of its kind in the world – and in particular a selection of Russian Easter eggs from tsarist times unparalleled outside Russia. It was a picture of the famous Apple Blossom Egg by Karl Fabergé on the poster which wooed my daughter into the museum. We had a lot of mileage from the eggs – choosing our favourites and marvelling at the craftsmanship.

Also on display in the museum is a selection of the “Rhine Journey” paintings by Johann Ludwig Bleuler; they depict the entire Rhine from its source to its estuary and nerdy as it sounds, we were fascinated by the detail in these paintings having cycled along the Rhine earlier in the day and mused about its source and route.
The lunar rocks from the Apollo 11 and Apollo 17 missions as well as Liechtenstein national flags which were carried on the first and last manned flights to the Moon were fascinating. These were given to the Principality as a token of gratitude for the help provided to NASA by the Liechtenstein-based company Balzers AG, which at the time specialised in vacuum technology and supplied protective coatings for the space rockets. We would never have learned that nugget without visiting the museum!

Last but by no means least, the display also features the original design of the first ever postage stamp issued by the Principality of Liechtenstein.

We certainly got our money’s worth and spent a happy hour examining the treasures – yes! The Princely Crown is a replica, but it does plainly say that on the entrance poster. In the time we pottered around, many visitors walked briskly through, pausing briefly, to admire the main Faberge egg and the replica crown. I would not say that they gained much from the collection so hesitate to give more than 3 stars. However, there is a combo ticket option to include the Liechtenstein museum and it could be that these particular tourists were ‘all museumed out’ on reaching the treasure chamber!

Note that photography is not allowed – the Security Guard became quite ferocious when a visitor took a photo of the Faberge egg….the guest was ordered to DELETE the pic immediately!

We were glad that my daughter had dragged us into the collection.

Nice Faberge eggs from differrent contries, some paintings and other interesting objects are exposed at Treasure Chamber. You have to take a coin from Postal Museum or Landes Museum to enter.
