We visited the exhibition Valloton-Katz. Very nice as both artists really do match in a way. Unfortunately in my opinion: the museum owns close to 10'000 paintings according to their webpage but has no space to show even the masterpieces. Hopefully the new building will change this.

We found there any interesting collections. The part dedicated to contemporary glass work was really beautiful. In the museum you will find also many artifacts of middle age and well presented. We spent more than 1 hour inside and I think I will come back with my kids during summer holidays

Although not on a level with Paris or London, there are a number of pieces in this museum worth seeing, and it is definitely worth the entrance fee. The highlight of the collection is the Swiss art, ranging from the mountain landscapes of Louis Ducros and others, to more modern, abstract and Cubist works
