Since September 6, 2014, the jubilee exhibition unforeSeeable – Earthquakes in Switzerland has been welcoming guests keen to visit the land of earthquakes, Switzerland. In the course of Zurich’s Long Night of Museums, over 2,000 visitors embarked on this voyage of discovery, exploring the latest findings from earthquake research and attempting to construct more or less earthquake-resistant houses.

Over the past few months, seismologists, historians, graphic designers, architects, IT specialists, cartographers, and many others have devoted their time and energies to the unforeSeeable – Earthquakes in Switzerland exhibition, collecting, selecting, wording, and then finally editing material for the displays. The concept and design were developed in parallel to ensure the exhibition would be a memorable experience. In addition, a huge milling machine was deployed to produce a relief of Switzerland, accurate down to the last millimeter, which now displays colorful earthquake maps in all variations. In the end, staff had just three days from the tightening of the first screw until the opening of the exhibition.
On Sunday, September 21, 2014, all are invited to attend an Open House, the perfect opportunity for you to get to know the Swiss Seismological Service up close.
