The pig. Likeable, clever and tasty

Today: 10.00 AM - 5.00 PM

03 March 2018 - 11 August 2019

They play, cultivate friendships and react curiously to every little change: The Museum.BL accompanies pigs on a farm and shows how unusually varied the short life of a fattening pig can be.

An animal that we use and which is so similar to us at the same time: Why can we fall in love with a sweet piglet and eat a delicious roast pork the next day? How do we deal with this conflict? Researchers, breeders, farmers and butchers are looking at the human view of the pig.
