The Communications Museum in Bern had a makeover recently and is probably the best educational experience we’ve had in a museum. To me it’s proof of how much museography has evolved and how by embracing digital era technologies museums can become learning hubs for both adults and kids.
We recently visited the Museum of the district Pays d’En Haut in Château d’Oex which is hosting a temporary exhibition of Swiss paper-cut art from the Simmental, Saanenland and Paysd’Enhaut regions of Switzerland.
I was attracted to the idea of outsider art since a couple of years ago when I discovered the concept but didn’t quite grasp what it was until this Saturday when we visited the Outsider Art Museum in Lausanne. I had enrolled my son in a sculpture workshop for children on the theme of their newest exhibition dedicated to the human form – Le Corps.
