Museum

Immerse yourself in the history of the Great Saint Bernard pass.

The lively museum located in a former armoury next to the Roman amphitheatre presents a range of works of art and objects that have marked the history of the hospice and the Great Saint Bernard pass. This heritage is brought to life by a modern, interactive exhibition that immortalises the universal symbolism of Saint Bernards. Countless legends have grown up about the dogs from the Great Saint Bernard pass since the 19th century. Various exhibits in the museum record their portrayal in literature, art and advertising for example.
