Steinmuseum Solothurn


The museum has the following two main focuses: Stone documents and stone crafts. Stone documents include, among others, stones with Roman inscriptions, grave slabs, statues.

Stones play an important role in the history of the town of Solothurn. Since Roman times, Solothurn limestone has been used as a building material or for inscriptions, and later also as a base material for figures and decorations. The stone trade was once the most important employer in the region. The stone museum is located in the heart of Solothurn's old town and tells the story of Solothurn stone and its processing. Important stone objects from the city and cantonal archaeology collections are on display.

The museum is open from May to October. Throughout the year, the "Solothurn Megalithic Trail" set up by the Stone Museum leads from Waldegg Castle to impressive stones in the vicinity of the city.
