The Swiss Room takes the architecture of a meeting hall, the Zurich Room at the Fraumunster Abbey, and applies the ideas of Swiss cooperation and coming into being to the choice of chairs and tables. Twenty six chairs, each with a unique cantonal symbol, represent the twenty six cantons of Switzerland, and the order in which they entered the federation.
Four stabellen type tables represent the four official languages of Switzerland. Pencil portraits of social reformers Rousseau and Pestalozzi are upon the back wall, and books and other ephemera related to distant and local Swiss connections are shown in the display cases. A ceramic kachelofen sits at the front of the Room.
