Eugène Burnand Museum at Moudon
The Eugène Burnand Museum at Moudon (Switzerland) is in a beautiful historic villa in the old, elevated part of town, itself worth visiting. It is about 12 miles (20 kilometers) north-east of Lausanne, in the direction of Bern. It is open Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons 2pm to 6pm, April to November, and any time for groups by arrangement. Over 100 of his works are on display.
Moudon is a beautiful old town of about 5,000 inhabitants. The oldest part (ville-haute) is especially picturesque and has several historic buildings. The museum itself occupies the second floor of the Denezy Villa (pictured). The Moudon Museum is in another similar villa to the left. There is adequate car parking next to the museum (N 46.669562 E 6.793525). The road from the town is quaint but steep, although there is another (ville-haute) car park a few hundred yards away with only a gentle slope up to the museums (N 46.667570 E 6.789885). The town website gives up to date information on the museum and other town attractions. It is in English as well as French and well worth a look if you are thinking of visiting.
