There used to be a Museum of Swiss Brands in Bern which had permanent exhibits of famous Swiss brands and inventions. Unfortunately, this museum is no longer open. Most organisations or corporations now somehow prefer to run their own exhibitions or visitor centres. So for watches, there are museums for different brands - Omega, Patek Phillipe, IWC, etc. Chocolates - the famous ones are Maison Cailler in Broc and Lindt in Zurich, but there are also smaller ones such as Alprose in Calsano and House of Laderach in Bilten. The FIFA Museum in Zurich would be a good place to find exhibits and information about past and current world cups. Also you might interested in the Olympic Museum in Lausanne.

Fyi, the Swiss Travel Pass also works as a Swiss Museum Pass, allowing you to enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums in Switzerland. You can find further details here: www.myswissalps.com/swisstravelpass/details
