Partner organisations

The Swiss Customs Museum works together with other national and international organisations.

Customs implement around 150 laws which are not directly connected to Customs. The Swiss Customs Museum sheds light on the role Customs has to play in the nation's economy and culture, and in the security and health of Swiss citizens. It is for that reason that the museum works together with partner organisations such as the Federal Office of Culture (FOC), Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO), the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM), the Swiss National Museum (SNM) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

The museum is one of the reality settings for the Musée Imaginaire des Migrations, a virtual museum (on the internet) of real life and migration stories. The project, operating outside the confines of physical walls, involves many partner organisations.

The Museo delle culture Lugano (MUSEC) and the Swiss Museums Association are also partner organisations of the Customs Museum.

Furthermore, the Swiss Customs Museum is a member of the International Association of Customs/Taxation Museums (IACM). The association includes 26 countries which run a Customs museum under their own customs administrations.
