Design tour: a DIY mudac tour

mudac aims to make the tour accessible at all times: embark on this journey whenever you wish, thanks to a booklet which will guide you to the various benches in the city of Lausanne.

The path will lead you from Place de la Cathédrale, which housed mudac between 2000 and 2021, to the new Plateforme 10 arts district, which now houses the museum in a brand-new architectural setting.

This tour is designed to give you an idea of the diversity of Lausanne’s seating options, in both formal and aesthetic terms, as well as the materials and construction processes used.

Alongside the Plateforme 10 museums and in line with its long-standing commitment, mudac encourages the global inclusion of people with disabilities and barrier-free access.

Cultural outreach

Alongside each of its exhibitions, mudac offers various forms of activities, from the classic guided tour to specific projects aimed at a particular audience.


mudac has a wide range of offers for the novice and the curious as well as for design enthusiasts.

Schools and teachers

mudac is delighted to welcome school classes to its new halls and its cultural outreach room, as young people are the audience of tomorrow.
