  • There is nothing like this collection in the world. Special and impressive. Culture at top level!!!! 
  • It is recommended for anyone more time over the Lake and the Olympic Games. I tried because I also had spare time a little for 2 nights, but quite good. To non-Japanese works in Western Japan with the theme (old Tokyo landscape was? ), Are depicted in the dense, looked interesting. I think it is worth a look at each piece in likes and dislikes will be.

  • entering this place is an experience, not a vitsit to a museum. It lets you think further and putting those pièces of art to the public is not only courageous, it is a necessity. thanks

  • 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!
  • I don't agree with the concept of Art Brut, but if you do this is the right place to visit in Lausanne. The museum location is beautiful.
  • Amazing place, highly recommended for all art's lovers. Unfortunately taking photos not permitted.
  • A very unique and intriguing experience. Art made by society's outcasts (suffering from Down syndrome or schizophrenia, often locked away in asylums) is very different than the art we are used to see. There is no regard for what the others will think, and no self-censorship in areas like sexuality. Reading the personal stories of all the different authors was extremely interesting. Save around 2.5 - 3 hours for a full tour. I came two hours before closing and ran out of time.
  • This is the most interesting museum in Lausanne (and probably within a 100 mile radius). Thom Yorke paid a visit when Radiohead played nearby and I am pretty confident that his visit served as the inspiration for their Weird Fishes video (I could be wrong).
