Forum Schwyz is a historical museum housed in a former granary in the little town of Schwyz whose historical centre is worth a visit in itself. The museum's main exhibition focuses on the early history of the Swiss confederation, using very up-to-date exhibition techniques. Forum Schwyz also hosts temporary exhibitions on historical and cultural topics. You can get to Schwyz by train in under an hour, then take a bus to Schwyz, Post from where it's a few minutes' walk. If you want to make a day of it, consider going by ship: it's nearly 2h to Brunnen and from there 5 min by train to Schwyz. Audio guides in English, French and Italian.
