  • Fabulous photography collection on view with a thoughtful curatorial angle. Architecturally beautiful museum with large gallery rooms. Lovely librairie and café in the first floor. An afternoon well spent.

  • 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.

  • Interesting photography exhibition in lausanne near the Olympic museum.

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