My uncle suggested this museum, and he was right to do so! I loved the artwork as well as the stories the signs told about the artists (also in English). With almost every artist I got the funny feeling that the longer I looked at his/her work, the more there was to see, while the overall impression could be very... More

It's a very unusual, different from any other art museum. The collection is huge, consists of many artworks on several floors. I visited it during free Saturday (first Saturday of the month). Lots of artist vere mentally ill or had a very hard life, very often sad family stories. When reading the biographies made me sad and I went out... More

If you like to think out of the box, this is the place for you. A museum without pretensions that gives visibility to "humble great artist", out of the art business. Art as a way to liberate the spirit, no matter what comes out. I enjoyed it so much!

This is a unique collection of artworks by those artists who were untrained and who experienced challenging lives, often shaped by mental illness and solitude. This collection offers a fascinating insight into the creative minds of these special artists who work in a broad range of often cheap materials yet in a dynamic and very personal way. The skill and... More

It is not expensive and it's worth the trip. We saw beautifull paintings and it is fairly easy to reach by bus

The art at L'Art Brut is strange and awesome. It is one of the best museums in Lausanne and I always make a point of visiting it when I am in town.

It's an incredible museum. We are used to intellectualize art , take it in with our esthetically developed senses ..instead , what you see in that Museum (de l'art bruit) is unexpected , raw, honest conversation of the artist with him/herself. They don't need to impress, they don't need to sell, they want to take it out of their system... More

Art Brut tends to be the number one recommended art museum for visitors in Lausanne, although it is located on the outskirts of town. Lausanne is built into the side of a pretty steep hill, so getting to the city sites requires some leg strength, but every step up allows a better and better view of Lake Leman and the... More
