  • There were probably three other people in this museum when I went on a Saturday morning. They have a display of the automatons, which seems to be a main attraction, but also some great photography and...  more »
  • The building is my if self worth a look. Couldn't read a thing but nice art work, some of the older photographs were interesting.  more »
  • The Neuchâtel art is rarely presented. Reserves should be more interesting than the exhibitions. The collection of impressionists sucks (except 1 Courbet)

  • A very nice place to learn about the modern history of Neuchatel as well as to see the evolution of art in Neuchatel. Has a 50% discount for students and is free on Wednesdays. Manage to go there on the first week of the month so you also get to see the mechanical puppets show.
  • It's very interesting to see this place
  • Fascinating and really informative!!! The Jaquet Droz Androids are a true work of MAGIC!!! The history of Neuchâtel is really Well presented! The room with the new art is a must!
  • Not interactive enough but fine for rainy days

Where to stay in Neuchatel

A visit to the city of Neuchâtel is well-spent lakefront to take full advantage of the panoramic views. Here you'll find a handful of comfortable, moderately priced hotels. The majority of the accommodations are either downtown or close to the train station. In the downtown area visitors can appreciate the broad streets lined with neo-Romanesque sandstone buildings, while still within walking distance to the city's famed absinthe distilleries. Offerings for budget hostels and guesthouses can be slim. High-end five-star hotels and international chains can be found along the water's edge.
