Collection de l'Art Brut features the artistic works of individuals who have been in prison, a psychiatric institution, or have had psychiatric difficulties. Three floors of temporary and permanent exhibits feature an array of expressive visual pieces, each accompanied by the story behind the artist. Note that your bags must be put in a locker upon entry, and photography is prohibited. The gallery may not be appropriate for young children given the mature content of some of the works. Use public transportation to reach the gallery; there is no visitor parking. Make Collection de l'Art Brut part of your personalized Lausanne itinerary using our Lausanne day trip site.
