Landschaftspark Binntal - The exhibition is devoted to the thing that has made this valley famous far beyond Switzerland: minerals.

Part of this extensive collection belongs to the local community itself, since it is legally entitled to a share of the yield from the Lengenbach mine. Geological maps, a model of the mine (which cannot be visited) and photographs of the activities of the "Strahler" (crystal miners) complete the exhibition.
