Liechtenstein is a very special small country which is rather conservative and trying to preserve its traditions. At the end of the 19th century prince Johann II started a collection of archaeological findings from Liechtenstein and cultural heritage of the country. Today you can learn a lot about local life, rituals, religion and government of the country at a museum building in the pedestrian zone of Vaduz.

Part of the Liechtensteinisches Landesmuseum is also the so-called Engländerbau next door. It contains the postal museum and the treasury of the country. Once you’ve got a token from the cash desk of the postal museum you can enter the vault through an automated airlock system. Weaponry, crowns, Fabergé eggs, moon rock (gifted by Richard Nixon) wait behind these doors.
