Lausanne now has a new museum and a new skate park as well! This new building dedicated to fine art and modern architecture will also attract skateboard enthusiasts. The promenade on the site includes several sloping platforms which are sure to inspire skateboarders to show off their kickflips and other manoeuvres in their repertoire.

THE cultural place to be in Lausanne, just a step away from the train station. Everytime we visit, we can't help but take a picture of the Luce e ombra tree in the MCBA's entrance hall.

Just a few short steps from the main train station, PLATEFORME 10 is the new arts district in Lausanne. Unique in Switzerland, this neighborhood has arisen on the site of a former railway locomotive repair shed. The site gathers the Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts (MCBA), the Cantonal Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts (mudac) and the Cantonal Museum for Photography (Photo Elysée).

In the same place and with a single admission ticket, the public is invited to discover the museums' program in a convivial way: by walking from one museum to the other, they take an original journey between the disciplines of design, photography and fine arts.

At PLATEFORME 10, a visit to the museums is part of a whole: the restaurants, cafés and arcades, as well as the wide spaces of the esplanade that can be explored on foot, by bike, skateboard or scooter, alone or with the family, make a visit to the arts district a unique moment of sharing, culture and leisure.
