The Palais de Rumine is a late 19th-century building in Florentine Renaissance style in Lausanne, Switzerland.HistoryOn his death, Gabriel de Rumine, son of Russian nobility, left the city of Lausanne 1.5 million Swiss Francs to erect a building for the use of the public.Building began in 1892 according to the design of the Lyonnais architect Gaspard André. The building was inaugurated on the 3 November 1902, although building work continued until 1904.It housed facilities such as the library of the University of Lausanne, and scientific and artistic collections belonging to the Canton of Vaud. In the 1980s, the university moved to its current location by Lake Geneva due to lack of space, and the Palais was restructured.Current useThe building currently hosts one of the three sites of the Cantonal and University Library of Lausanne. Additionally, it contains the following museums: Musée cantonal des beaux-arts (Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts) Musée cantonal d'archéologie et d'histoire (Cantonal Museum of Archeology and History) Musée monétaire cantonal (Cantonal Museum of Money) Musée cantonal de géologie (Cantonal Museum of Geology) Musée cantonal de zoologie (Cantonal Museum of Zoology)Plan to see Palais de Rumine and other attractions that appeal to you using our Lausanne travel itinerary planner.

Must see place for tourists. The palace is magnificently big and contains lots of exhibitions like paleontology, archeology, geology, zoology, etc which were free to see during our trip in summer 2016. We spent 2 hours and felt it was less if you have interest in looking closely at the exhibitions.
All museums are gathered in a building. You can access to the cathedral through the bridge at the 2nd floor.
A nice building, inside you will find different interesting museums.
Adrian Villegas CastrillónA great place. Apart from size, insurance is an interesting site. With a large square has everything outside and a small garden where stroll. The different departments of the Museum are very complete and care. A place for families, and spend an enjoyable afternoon. With a friendly and attentive staffView original
