The museum celebrates its 40th anniversary!
ICONIQUES MÉCANIQUES is a large exhibition dedicated to the 40th anniversary of the museum, presenting the hidden treasures of its collections.
A unique exhibition !
In a three-stage tour, you will be able to discover for the first time vehicles but also unusual objects specially taken out of the reserves.
What does this exhibition contain ?
The tour begins with the treasures of the Schlumpf brothers’ legacy, including unexpected objects that illustrate Fritz’s “Swissness” and a few old pieces about mobility, such as a sedan chair. This first part also deals with the process of building the collection.
The visit continues with the treasures in the history of the automobile, looking back at the pioneering brands, from big cars to small popular models, and the acquisitions of the museum since its opening in 1982.
The last part of the tour will be devoted to the evolution of the site, with archival documents from the spinning factory, which later became a showcase for the collections before being transformed into a museum and then into a real place of cultural life.
Hurry up, it’s coming !!!
Come and discover cars from the reserves on display for the first time in honour of the Museum’s 40th anniversary from 29 April 2022 !
