Vivid presentation of emotions, states of depression, mental disorders. It's definitely worth visiting to see how those people express their internal fights through art.

The Collection de l'Art Brut is a gem of a place featuring the works of several off-beat artists including the wonderful Henry Darger and James Edward Deeds. Well presented. A compelling place.

A bit out of the way but worth the wander up the hill. My favourite collection in Lausanne. Not muc to recomend the cafe next door but the garden is decent place in the summer for a beer.

Unique art museum, beautiful pieces, fabulous life stories. One needs almost 2 visits as a lot to take in.Close to Beaulieu, no parking so easiest by bus.

I am so glad I spent an afternoon at the museum. I was amazed by the collection of pieces made by, not trained artists, but by people with amazing life stories. Don't miss this if you are in the region.

This is not your classic art museum but rather a fringe exhibition which is thought provoking and moving. It is a personal journey for each person whose work is exhibited and we found it fascinating. It is a very powerful form of expression. Do not...More

A very interesting exhibition of the works of the people who never planned to be an artist. The stories... tragic, crazy, magical... Plus professional preparation of the exhibition.

I have been to this museum many times now and every time i discover something new. The stories behind every item are fascinating! I recommend everyone to go there at least once!
