Situated in the centre of Yverdon-les-Bains, the Maison d’Ailleurs is the only Swiss museum dedicated solely to popular culture, inviting nature lovers or the curious to travel around a centre of gravity where science and art are fed by the imagination. Twice a year, the museum puts on an original exhibition, drawn from its collection of 130,000 objects, along with contributions from prominent artists. Internationally renowned, its exhibitions travel around the world.
