The Musée des Ormonts is currently showing an exhibition dedicated to the numerous painters who were inspired by the beauty of the Alps.

Each painter has a very personal view of the valley and conveys it using his own vision, lighting, palette of colours and framework. Showcased over 3 floors, around one hundred paintings represent a diverse range of what has been painted since the 1850s.

The artists include François Birbaum, Frédéric Dufaux, Albert Duplain, Edouard Morerod, Charles Parisod, Jean Prahin, Fernand Morel and Frédéric Rouge.

“Game folders” are available for children to make their visit more fun. A projection room featuring old and new films about traditional life in the Ormonts region completes the visit.

Special terms: Free admission to holders of the Free Access Card, Raiffeisen Card or the Swiss Museum Pass. Discounts with BCV Maestro Card. Free admissions and discounts are granted upon presentation of the respective cards. Voucher can be redeemed at the museum entrance.
