Museum du Vieux Pays

This museum (Musée du Vieux Pays-d’Enhaut) provides the heritage of a mountain region which for many years was rather isolated. Its people created a craft industry of an exceptional quality and their beautiful chalets housed treasures of a living art. Amongst these treasures are glass and posters, a forge, an alpine cheese-making room, Folk-art by works of artists such as Pilet and the bailiff Gachet who painted beautiful watercolours. The museum is one of the principal folk-art museums in Switzerland.
