Petit Futé's opinion on CANTONAL MUSEUM OF ARCHAEOLOGY AND HISTORY

Plate millesim 2022

15,000 years of Waldensian history, from the last hunters of the late Paleolithic period to modern times, are brought together here through various objects discovered during excavations. The collections are very varied and reflect the activity of archaeologists in the canton of Vaud since the 19th century. In particular, you can see numerous objects from the lake dwellings of Lake Geneva, the first place of human settlement before the Cité Hill, as well as rich funerary furnishings from Neolithic, Iron Age, Bronze Age and Early Middle Ages cemeteries, with the arrival of the Burgundians. Reconstructions, models and audio-visual aids also contribute to a better understanding of the history. Each room defines a period, that of prehistory and then that of history.

The temporary exhibitions present particular facets of these collections and also make it possible to reveal new discoveries from recent excavations, the objects of which are still being studied. The museum is very complete, very well laid out, and the building hosting the exhibitions is really worth a visit. No doubt that during a few hours of rain, it should attract your attention and perhaps hold your attention even more! In addition, we really appreciate the city's initiative to offer some of its museums, especially those in Rumine's palace, with completely free admission. So don't hesitate any longer!
