The history of Lausanne is back in the recently renovated museum. The famous model of the city, as it looked in 1638, is the centrepiece of the new exhibition (Lausanne, l’ Exposition). The show provides a clear and well-documented picture of the economic, religious, social and cultural history. Eleven rooms deal with various topics, from water to mobility, from leisure to housing, from the Middle Ages to the Enlightenment and many other aspects of this exciting city. The exhibition is available in English and French. The museum also organises temporary exhibitions and events.
