This is a museum for photographs, and only photographs – about 100,000 of them. Housed in a charming house between Ouchy and the train station, the collections include historical, modern and contemporary works. Its crowning glory, however, is “The 100 Years of Tramp” exhibition, about 10,000 pictures collected from across Charlie Chaplin’s entire career.

Musee De L'elysee, Lausanne Reviews - Write a Review

  • This is a great photography museum! If you love photography or know nothing about photography, it's definitely worth a visit.

  • Even if not too big this museum dedicated to pictures is a wonderful place to visit in Lausanne. The exhibitions are always of high quality and really instructive. The Museum itself is a very enjoyable place with a good bookshop and a warmful Café. The Museum is settled in the middle of a garden that is connected with the Olympic Museum. You can visit this two places at once. In front of the garden there is a great panorama with the lake and the Alps. A Great place for families or single and romantic visitors.

  • Very interesting if you like photography or like looking at images through the ages.

  • Beautiful old mansion turned in to a photography museum that features world renowned photographers, includes a small cafe with a vintage Photo Booth that still works and a gift shop including photography books. (entry is cheap)

  • Great exhibitions, lovely building and location. I would have liked a bit more depth in the background and info.
