looks like at the
The Glacier Garden is planning for and building its future. The aim is to remain an attractive place for discovery and the museum is therefore investing 20 million francs in new attractions and the renovation of the museum and parking area.
Work on drilling the rock, where an adventure tour will be created, has already begun. In addition, the park will be enlarged by one third.
The project will be completed by 2021. As of September 2018, financing of 1.5 million francs is still required. The Glacier Garden will remain open during the entire building period.
your support will leave traces in the rock and in the glacier garden
Numerous private individuals are already enthusiastic about the project and have supported it financially. In addition, generous donations from foundations and the public sector have been received. However, for the beginning of construction in September 2018, the Glacier Garden Foundation still needs 1.5 million francs in order to reach the goal of 20 million francs. Help fill this gap with your contribution!

making good headway as a non-profit organisation
The Glacier Garden is among the most visited museums in Switzerland. Two-thirds of the visitors come from Switzerland and one third have travelled from over 130 countries. The Glacier Garden is especially appreciated by visitors from Europe and Asia. This success with the public contributes significantly to a self-financing level of over 95 percent. Thanks to the project Rock, this should remain the case. The Glacier Garden is run by a non-profit organisation. The team is made up of 21 employees, who are supported by temporary assistants and guides.

The financing of the project Rock is off to a good start: financial contributions from the following institutions, organisations, private individuals, and public administrations have already totalled 18.5 million francs.
