  • A journey to the depths of sublimated suffering. Designs that were not so, but taking in the figure much more strongly than many pseudo creations who claim artistiqes. The exhibition space is beautiful, boxes of explanation (french and English) are clear and useful. Thanks to Dubuffet and the city of Lausanne.

  • Because the words one. Just fantastic and very impressive. A true delight! Take 1-2 hours time, the best morning next to the opening, there are a few people and you have peace and space to marvel at the unique Kpnstler!

  • This museum is unusual, I know him since my childhood, I'm 54 years old, he has taught me many things including tolerance... In 2017, not only I found some of the sensations that had upset me, as this wooden wall, a cell of a serious psychiatric hospital with a teaspoon, per patient, but in addition, I met an incredible dynamic, invited from around the world to expose this from somewhere else, gross art "Work shop", organization of business visits and thematic concerts made me go back to this place Magic, where we discover a universe of spirits, out of the ordinary... If you go through Lausanne, check out this site.

  • 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!

Where to stay in Lausanne

Elegant Lausanne is home to many luxury hotels for those looking to indulge. There is also a great number of mid-range options, a happy compromise compared to some of the pricey four-star accommodation. You'll also find plenty of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts in the area, though they are slightly removed from the idyllic lakefront. Hostels in the city are few and far between, so come prepared with a flexible budget.
