Musee de la Porcelaine, Nyon

(4.3/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Uncover the layers of history at Musee de la Porcelaine, a museum housed within a 13th-century castle. The elegant white castle overlooking the Canton of Vaud was first mentioned in 1272 but likely dates back to the Lords of Prangins. Having undergone multiple restorations and renovations, it remains a Swiss heritage site of national significance. In 1888 a historical museum was opened within it, now on the second and third floor. The collection contains wallpaper, furniture, and the history of Nyon starting from 1000 BCE and continuing through the 20th century. In 1947, over 700 porcelain pieces reclaimed from the 19th-century Nyon porcelain factory were added, making up the first floor.
