  • Resolutely modern, the mudac is dedicated to contemporary art through two permanent exhibitions and four to six exhibitions per year. Design, graphic design, fashion: the Museum is interested in all forms of modern art and likes to throw bridges between styles. Break stereotypes and look at nine on art: this is one of the philosophies of the mudac. In its permanent space, the Museum has the largest collection of glass art contemporary in Switzerland and Europe, as well as an exhibition of ancient Egyptian and Asian arts. As for temporary exhibitions, they are always there where you don't expect them: ceramics, photography, but also media and jewelry are in turn in the spotlight. By 2020, the Museum of contemporary art will leave the building located in front of the Cathedral of Lausanne, to join the Museum pole, near the train station. The mudac regularly participates in special events and entertainment for children.

  • The Museum of applied arts is located opposite the Cathedral. If the weather turned bad, and walk through the old part of the city was interrupted, this museum is a good place where you can benefit from interest to wait out bad weather.

  • 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.  more »
  • Check ahead is all exhibits are open. We chose to not go inside because many exhibits were open. Humble gift shop was tidy.
  • Small museum with interesting expositions.
  • Original museum. Known for the temporary exhibitions.
  • Contemporary art, there you can see also an iPad 2. Moreover, if you buy a ticket it is worth to visit two more museums in Lausanne with the same price of 20 CHF
  • Beautiful and fascinating museum! The Tintin exhibition was a true joy!
