  • I expected far more from this museum than it delivered. The vast majority of the museum was devoted to Gus van Sant and it was more behind the scenes memorabilia and snapshots than true works of photo...  more »
  • We expected a lot from this Museum and we are very disappointed! Apart from the current exhibition devoted to Gus Van Sant who deserves the,(les Polaroïds et grands tirages sont très beaux) the rest of the themes visit has not convinced. Sub floor missed an exhibition on the theme of a return to the scene of a photo job done 80 years ago: you can't see anything of this parallel: frankly failed! Working with adolescents is unsuccessful... The place is very beautiful, but it was perhaps too much waiting

  • This is a great photography museum! If you love photography or know nothing about photography, it's definitely worth a visit.
  • Even if not too big this museum dedicated to pictures is a wonderful place to visit in Lausanne. The exhibitions are always of high quality and really instructive. The Museum itself is a very enjoyable place with a good bookshop and a warmful Café. The Museum is settled in the middle of a garden that is connected with the Olympic Museum. You can visit this two places at once. In front of the garden there is a great panorama with the lake and the Alps. A Great place for families or single and romantic visitors.
  • Very interesting if you like photography or like looking at images through the ages.
  • Beautiful old mansion turned in to a photography museum that features world renowned photographers, includes a small cafe with a vintage Photo Booth that still works and a gift shop including photography books. (entry is cheap)
  • Great exhibitions, lovely building and location. I would have liked a bit more depth in the background and info.

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.
