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.

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!

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.
