Eugène Burnand Museum at Moudon
Home page

Please note. When I visited the museum in June 2019 I found there had been changes that will help to get Burnand better known but may make a visit to the museum less appealing for some. Several of the very large pictures such as 'Charles the Bold' and 'Bull in the Alps' have been moved to Lausanne Fine Arts museum where I understand they are to be on display. In the spaces left are works of a contemporary of Burnand, Gustave de Beaumont (1851 – 1922).

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).
