“Would have been good to have spoken a bit more french!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

REally good displays and a wonderful montage of Lausanne in the 1600's but even tho there was english notes there was a lot of information missing. A guide would have been a good option if there had been one available.

“Beautiful photography museum”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

The collection here changes twice per year, always featuring a well-known photographer working on a modern or post-modern theme. Exhibitions are well-planned, and the atmosphere is perfect for contemplation - it seems to be an old estate house, just by the lake. Make sure to check out the attic.

“Very variable according to the exhibition.”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

The main disadvantage of this place is the layout. There are a lot of stairs which make it difficult for less mobile visitors. However, some of the exhibitions are fascinating whilst others are mediocre. On the plus side, it's not expensive so it is a place I visit regularly.

“Nice Museum”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is a nice place to spent time while in Lausanne. Exhibition and theme are nicely done that emphases the pictures' magic effects, creates a great atmosphere and make it accessible to anybody. Nice bookstore at the entrance.
