Permanent Collection

LE MUSEE D’ART ET D’HISTOIRE

Conceived as a multidisciplinary museum, the musée d’art et d’histoire houses collections in the domains of archeology, fine arts and applied arts, and offers a view of the history of civilisation, prehistory and contemporary times.

The museum’s most celebrated piece is « La Peche Miraculeuse » by Konrad Witz (1400-1445).


LA MAISON TAVEL

La maison Tavel houses over 1700 objects and works of art, ranging from household objects used in ancient kitchens, to a relief by Magnin.

LE MUSEE ARIANA

The musée Ariana is located within a superb area of greenery, and the building’s imposing architecture makes it a significant sight of its own merit. It houses 16000 ceramics, 2000 glass items, and a collection of modern and contemporary porcelain.

The Cabinet is among the five most important in Switzerland, and among the 50 most important in the world. Its collection is comprised of over 300,000 pieces, covering 500 years of history.

The Cabinet does not display its permanent collection, but it can be viewed by appointment.
