Good for a brief visit
Aug 2019
The chateau itself is impressive, and inside it has two museums. We skipped the miliatry museum and went to the one with the history of the Canton de Vaud. Very informative for a brief visit.

If you’re looking for a true castle tour, this is not it
Aug 2019 • Couples
The castle is right in town in Morges on the waterfront, and is lovely on the outside so we went for a visit. I love castle tours where you get a very real feeling of the castle history, get to see archives of the original dwelling, a history of occupancy, furnishings, etc. If that’s what your looking for, this is not the place. It has been turned into a museum only, where most of the original structure inside has been covered by drywall and displays to showcase the museums, that have mostly nothing to do with the castle, itself. They were interesting, but being my interest is with historic period dwellings, there was really nothing here to see in that regard.

Come for medieval castle, stay for science fiction weaponry inspired by current and old weapons
Jul 2019 • Family
In this typical Savoyard 4-tower castle there are four entertaining museums. The most surprising one is an exhibition of science fiction weaponry from dozens of films displayed next to the original weapons that inspired them ranging from the medieval to the modern period. Great for kids. In the basement there is a collection of artillery from various periods in Swiss history and the other exhibits include a history of Swiss policing and Swiss military. During the Summer there are free movies shown in the inner courtyard.

As the castle is right next to the lake you can enjoy a beautiful view and a ride with the 19th century paddleboats (check CGN for schedule).

Worth a stop

There are actually two museums within the castle from what we could tell. We visited the military museum and loved it.

Great exhibition of arsenal
Jul 2018 • Family
We only had an hour but it was an hour well spent. The castle is very pretty but frankly, when you’re visiting the exhibit you won’t really see much of the castle.
We saw “Fantastique”, an arms & weapons exhibition, that had all sorts of movie weapins on display, ranging from Terminator via Alien and Narnia to Harry Potter and Hunger Games. Really good fun.

The more historical Swiss army (I’m guessing, permanent) exhibition was very interesting, too.

At Fr 10 per adult and Fr 3 per child, this was definitely worth the entrance fee.

Swiss military and a history of canton Vaud
Sep 2017 • Friends
The museum is easily located, direct from the train station and near the lake. It used to be a former castle so several corners and rooms. It has Swiss military uniforms from 1600, figurines, and weapons especially guns and different mortar fire. They had pistols too but I hope they are malfunctioning because I think anyone could break the glass cover that didn't look too protected.

Museum's nice, service wasn't great
Aug 2017 • Family
The museums and the castle itself are really nice. I went there with my sister. We found the figurine museum and the military section very fascinating. However there was a special exhibition for a few days including the one we went there, and that wasn't put on its website. We weren't told the artillery section was closed because there was a conference of sorts, even when we paid for the tickets, So we ended up paying extra for an exhibition we didn't want to see cause that was included in the price of the ticket for the weekend. Sidenote: we went through it anyway, it was about some actress's clothes and we had no interest in those, although I noticed few of the clothes on exhibit were being shown in the short clips on the screen next to them from her movies. We also ended up not seeing something we paid for and wanted to see. The man at the counter actually said when we went to ask him about it that it our bad luck and that it happened to a few other persons before. To be fair to him he signed our tickets and said we can go see the artillery section when (or in our case, if ever) we go to Morges again using those tickets without paying extra. However it did kind of spoil the experience.

Fairly interesting
Mar 2017 • Family
I visited the castle on 29 March with my 2 young grandchildren who live in Morges. To enter you have to go up steep steps. There seemed to be nowhere at the bottom to leave buggies, bikes, scooters etc. The first area contains displays in glass cases of tiny figures in war scenes etc but the cases are so high up I had to lift the 3 year old (heavy). The 5 year old could only just see. When we left the man in the office said he should have told us there were benches or stools to stand on - we didn't see them. The castle inside doesn't feel very ancient - it has a clean and modern feel to it. There is a courtyard with plants and that would be a good place to have a cafe. Outside the castle (after going through the gates) there is nowhere to sit to admire the view.

One of the great locations on the lake. Beautiful views, very relaxing and the museum give you a great and realistic perspective of Swiss history, especially in terms of the military. Must see if you are in the area.

Impressive building, impressive location
Jan 2017 • Family
Although I'm not keen on military history the Chateau is worth exploring for its architectural wonder. I was most impressed by the brickwork, which really looked very impressive...! Imagine all those people, carving those blocks - manually!!!
