The Musée Jenisch Vevey, driven by an openness to the greatest number of people, cultivates the idea that art creates spaces of freedom where it becomes possible to slow down and take a different look at the world. Contemplating, dreaming, expressing oneself, travelling... these are all essential elements for art to exist and for everyone to experience it.
We offer a variety of activities, based on sharing and discovery, while adapting to your needs and desires.


We look forward to welcoming you and travelling with you!

TaM - Tandem au Musée

The Musée Jenisch Vevey is taking part in the TaM - Tandem at the Museum project, which encourages exchange and imagination.


TaM - Tandem at the Museum is a national initiative that encourages the public to discover museums and their collections. In pairs or groups, participants are invited to choose a work of art and to imagine together a story inspired by it. The authors then publish their creation on the Swiss Imaginary Museum website, which brings together all the stories created in the framework of Tandem at the Museum.


After a particularly trying year for the world of culture, the Musée Jenisch Vevey has invited artists in residence within its walls in 2021, in all disciplines (visual arts, performing arts, literature, music, design), provided that creation is possible in a museum space.

With this approach, the Musée Jenisch Vevey wishes to maintain its spaces as a place of life, exchange and creation. Thus, workplaces have been set up in the exhibition rooms in order to support the artists in their artistic process and to promote it on its web supports (website and social networks).

After two rounds rich in exchanges and discoveries, the Musée Jenisch Vevey is extending the experience. The next residencies will take place in autumn 2022. A call for projects will be published at the beginning of summer 2022.

Môm’Art - La famille au musée

Because art and culture must be increasingly accessible to all, the Musée Jenisch Vevey is committed to this goal with Môm’Art - La famille au musée initiative.

Developed in France, the Môm’Art chart was created thanks to parents and visitors who are keen to accompany children to the museum. By signing this chart, the Musée Jenisch Vevey is committed to an active quality approach towards young visitors and families.

Moreover, by joining this initiative, the museum adheres to the "Ten rights of the young visitor" which invite children to appropriate the institution in a lively and uncomplicated way.


Pass Tous au Musée Jenisch

Wishing to strengthen its links with Vevey young students, the Musée Jenisch Vevey has set up the Tous au Musée Jenisch project.

Art and culture enable children to develop their sensitivity, their imagination, their personal expression and their relationship with the world. The encounter with cultural heritage, with creation and artistic experience contributes to the development of the child’s identity and autonomy. To contribute to this mission, the museum has developed a mediation action that will turn young Veveyans into cultural ambassadors.

In collaboration with the Vevey primary school, the museum organises cultural mediation workshops with the 6P classes. In connection with the museum’s temporary exhibitions, these meetings take place in the classroom and within the institution. This approach, which is intended to be creative, stimulating and informal, is complemented by a pass given to all participating pupils. The pass allows them to invite their families to visit the museum free of charge during the current school year.

The pass was produced in collaboration with the illustrator Mirjana Farkas.

This project is financially supported by the Brentano Foundation.

Podcast ART’S COOL

ART’S COOL is a collection of short episodes in French to discover contemporary art with curiosity and lightness.

It is a meeting with a work of contemporary Swiss art, looked at, assessed and questioned by young people, to whom the artists who created the works respond in their own way. An invitation to encounters, sometimes unexpected, between works exhibited in Switzerland... and you!

Three podcasts focus on works from our permanent collection of paintings:
