Musée national suisse - Château de Prangins
The château, a majestic residence built in the 1730s in classical French style, is home to the Swiss National Museum in western Switzerland.
The château became a museum in 1998. With its gardens and interiors restored to their 18th-century state, it makes for a day out that will appeal to lovers of both nature and culture.
The permanent exhibition “Noblesse oblige! Life at a Château in the 18th Century" showcases the historical heritage of Château de Prangins. The reception rooms on the ground floor have been restored to their former splendour, with lavish decoration.
Three permanent exhibitions complement the tour of the gardens and interiors, with a wide range of topics to explore: “Discovering the Garden”, “Panorama of Swiss History” and “Switzerland on the Move” which examines the country’s history from 1750 to 1920.
Each year, Château de Prangins organises temporary exhibitions on topics linked to art, culture and current affairs in Switzerland.
