Overview
More
Since its opening in 2000, the mudac, Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts, has built up a reputation for having an inquisitive and incisive attitude to the things that shape our way of life, and has always sought to ask pertinent - and sometimes impertinent! - questions. Its programme of between five and eight exhibitions a year alternates thematic projects with "carte blanche" events for designers from Switzerland and further afield. It presents renowned designers such as Zep or Stefan Sagmeister as well as young creators. From plastic bags to Playmobil and from flippers to fruit wrappers, from camouflage to pop-up, from fashion to graphic design and from industrial design to jewellery, the mudac welcomes every challenge. The mudac prides itself on providing a forum for dialogue and exchange, bringing together design with the applied arts and contemporary art. This unique and bold approach is recognised throughout the world, with exhibitions staged from Paris to Seoul. Check out the current exhibitions on our website !

Well worth a visit to explore the fascinating piece of glass art and other items in the exhibition. Perfect for popping into if you have visiting the cathedral which is next door.

Intelligent exhibition ("Mirror, mirror") with striking art pieces. The premisces are filled with light, with great views of the lake (transparent lift). Even the attic is used, and that makes for an original visit.

Right across from the Cathedral so easy to visit both in one trip. I spent most of my time on the upper floors seeing the studio glass special exhibit, which was quite nice, and just a little time in the lower floor which has a...More

Billed as a bit different it certainly was. Had a number of floors with themes including one on health and safety - not quite what I expected but good nevertheless.

For a small gallery it had an absolutely amazing display. Fantastic use of the space and lighting which is beautiful in itself and plenty interactions with the work to be had. The upper floor in particular was mesmerising. Absolute must if you're in the area!

A small museum right beside the cathedral. We happened to see an exhibition of experimental and artsy clocks - it's Switzerland!

One of the best museums in Lausanne. The regular roation of exhibitions makes it absolutely worth coming back to. Also in a great location just below the stunning cathederal.

The museum is in an old house, thus it is orgnized on several floors. The last exhibition was fascinating, and I trust that their curators will reliably surprise you on future themes alike.
