Dubuffet was the initiator of this remarkable museum. If you don't know what art brut means, go on wikipedia. Once visited, you'll never ask again and will come back regularly. It is never crowded and gives you time to appreciate a non-classical form of art.

It is one of my most favourite muséums and not only in Lausanne, but in general. The collection is great, very rich. Créations are amazing, very touching. There is really a special energy at this place. Highly recommend to visit!

I was a bit reluctant to visit, expecting much darker experience. Lovingly collected, well displayed.

Unique museum with a very genuine and original approach to art. Many authors with little education and not influenced by the society. Worth visiting it.
