GET TO KNOW THE BORDER

What is smuggling? What gets smuggled? What does a border guard do? What is the role of Customs in the economy? How important was the Swiss border in the Second World War? What significance does migration have for Switzerland?

A trip to the Swiss Customs Museum backs up and expands on history, geography and economics lessons in the classroom. An interactive guide to the museum, the workshop "Lara and Tim on their travels", is used for both preparation and consolidation.
