Art Museum Museum
Collection de l'Art Brut features the artistic works of individuals who have been in prison, a psychiatric institution, or have had psychiatric difficulties. Three floors of temporary and permanent exhibits feature an array of expressive visual pieces, each accompanied by the story behind the artist. Note that your bags must be put in a locker upon entry, and photography is prohibited. The gallery may not be appropriate for young children given the mature content of some of the works. Use public transportation to reach the gallery; there is no visitor parking.

  • ANGIELSKI A very interesting exhibition of the works of the people who never planned to be an artists. The stories... tragic, crazy, magical... Plus professional preparation of the exhibition.
  • Interesting place and I like the concept but I just don't appreciate art a lot. Some very interesting exhibits though!
  • Simply speechless! Beautiful, mesmerizing you name it! The art works are sublime! A must when visiting Lausanne and the region! It's my favorite museum in the world! You can spend hours upon hours!
  • Lots of surprising art pieces and life stories.
  • An incredible collection of work! This museum is not to miss while in Lausanne!
