Vaud Sights

Musée de Design et d'Arts Appliqués Contemporains (Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts)

  • Old Town

Fodor's Review

A museum of contemporary design seems amiss in this ancient quarter of the city, but it demonstrates the passion for art in everyday life. Temporary and permanent installations in the restored Maison Gaudard feature glassworks, textiles, and graphics. Creative and performing arts merge in multimedia shows.
