Inaugurated in 1910, the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire is one of the three largest museums in Switzerland and the only one with such a wide range of collections, the result of the merging of several regional museums and donations from collectors, foundations and philanthropic citizens. The richness of its collections is further enhanced by the presence of major works and several unique series, making it an institution of international standing.
For almost 40 years, the Centre of Contemporary Art has been at the cutting edge of production, research and experimentation. All sectors of modern art are represented: architecture, dance, design, drawing, new media, installation, music, painting, performance, photography, sculpture and video.
