Musée de design et d'arts appliqués contemporains

After spending 33 years in a soul-less venue in Villamont Avenue, Musée de Design et d'Arts Appliques Contemporains (MUDAC) found a home at the prestigious Gaudard house, magnificently renovated for the occasion. The exhibition space is divided between temporary and permanent collections. There is a large collection of contemporary work by glass artists, together with a very beautiful collection of ancient Egyptian and Chinese Art by Jacques-Edouard.


Ouchy is a great place to relax with the whole family. Paddle by the water fountains, watch the boats leave the harbor or read a book along the shaded quays. There are daily trips across the lake by boat to Evian in France and a worthwhile visit can be made to the Olympic Museum, where you can wander around the gardens free of charge. The beautiful views of Lake Geneva and the Chablais mountains make it a perfect place for a Sunday stroll, but better still if you're on skates.

Espace des Inventions

In the magnificent park of the Vallée de la Jeunesse lies Lausanne's Espace des Invention science museum. Located in an old 1964 National Exhibition building, this museum will explore specific themes that will change every two years. The exhibitions are aimed at children between seven and 15 years old but, as in all interactive and educational exhibits, adults will likely have more fun than they will admit to!

Signal de Bougy

Signal de Bougy, a leisure park that was conceived with the whole family in mind, has been open since the 1970s. You can relax by playing golf on a nine-hole course, mini golf, badminton, football and volleyball. For younger children there are swings, a playground, activities with clowns and a zoo. As far as eating is concerned, there is a self-service restaurant and picnic areas. For the major public holidays such as Easter and August 1st (a major Swiss holiday), a special entertainment program is organized.

Place St-François

Although it may not not look like much, but Place Saint François is the hub of Lausanne. The hippest of cafés here is the Café Romand. You can also the grand Saint François Church. Many street entertainers perform here and students hang out. Every city has one place where everyone inevitably winds up passing through, and this is the one in Lausanne. You will walk through the square on your way to trendy rue de Bourg, Place de la Palud, Place Riponne and all its museums. Good place to be seen.

Musée Cantonal de Zoologie

Musée cantonal de zoologie takes up the top floor of the Rumine Palace which dominates the Place de la Riponne. It displays a large collection of extinct animals from the region and other areas. A leaflet distributed to visitors allows you to explore the exhibits with ease; in each window, an animal chosen for its zoological, behavioral or historical importance is described at length. The other species presented are highlighted more succinctly. Various small exhibitions, either permanent or temporary, are displayed. Among these, cryptozoology is a favorite, for it is the science that describes animals whose existence has no scientific proof, and therefore cannot be officially "classified".
