Today around 600 objects are on display in the castle’s exhibitions, approx. 1,700 objects are a loan collection in the Swiss Army Museum and around 11,000 objects are in external storage. The collection in Thun Castle is mainly based on the town of Thun and the surrounding regions it influences. Focal points are set in special exhibitions.
