Broad collection encompassing the whole history of the canton de Vaud (and whomever it belong before). The atmosphere in this palace is very nice and authentic. best of all; it is free of charge.

On a Sunday morning we saw the video art exposition, well-documented and, to use that horrible but ineluctable word, "interesting." Pipilotti Rist's was most interesting. And we in fact really enjoyed the rest of the museum, the geology and archeology depts. Should be seen once....More
