On September 26 and 27, after more than 400 exhibitions, the Musée de l'Elysée will leave the building that has housed it for the past 35 years.

We have promised a closing party, which will take place in a form adapted to the current situation. In view of the sanitary constraints, the museum team has redesigned the event to allow you to bid farewell to the building.

Unusual visits and workshops for all audiences will be offered inside the museum, in parallel with the last days of the reGeneration4 exhibition.

We warmly thank you for your loyalty and look forward to welcoming you one last time at the Maison de l'Elysée before our move to PLATEFORME 10, the new art district of Lausanne.
