The Foundation HAM is the professional organization for the expert care of the historical army material assigned to it by the Swiss Confederation.
At the two locations Thun and Burgdorf we collect and present for our posterity and for interested citizens from all over the world the material (Tasks) of the Swiss Army.
The Special exhibition In Thun – 200 Years of the Weapons Range was opened as part of the ‘200 Years of the Weapons Range Thun’ celebrations and is also open to visitors.
The collection is not a museum and therefore we do not have regular opening and visiting hours.. The storage room exihibitions of our collection are accessible free of charge by appointment and guided in groups of at least 6 people.
Please note that we require a reasonable amount of preparation and coordination time to set up a tour. After your registration we will contact you and set up your visit. Registration
