If you were to take a helicopter flight over these nine hectares of green space, located to the south of Lausanne railway station, you might summarily describe it as a vast grassy square (Place de Milan) with a steep mound (Montriond Hill).

The Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts and Photo Elysée are two museums housed in a single building, and I must say that its architecture, with its refined lines, is truly magnificent. I love going there to discover the current exhibitions and have a coffee at Café Lumen, located at the mudac. And do you know what? Even in winter, if the sun is shining, I won’t hesitate to go out on the enclosed outdoors terrace. It’s fab to be able to get warm while enjoying the view.

More info

The mudac - Cantonal Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts - is located in the heart of the Plateforme 10 arts quarter, in a new exhibition space that also houses the Photo Elysée Museum.

The mudac is interested in modern art in all its forms and loves building bridges between styles. This is why the temporary exhibitions - that always go where we least expect them - showcase successively jewellery, graphic arts, ceramics, design objects, and media and photography. Among others, the museum presents the largest collection of contemporary glass art in Switzerland and Europe.

Challenging accepted notions and casting a fresh eye on art is one of the mudac’s philosophies!

Since its creation, the museum has been emphasising transdisciplinarity and the dynamics of exchanges with other disciplines. It regularly organises activities for children.
