Created in 1979 and in its current location since 1989, the Swiss Camera Museum is based on the market square next to the lake. It traces the history of photography and cameras in two narrow, four-storey buildings connected by a footbridge and an underground tunnel. The museum will be of interest to adults initiated by photography.
The laboratory of the Swiss Camera Museum offers a very interesting photo development workshop that will be of particular interest to children, on Wednesdays, weekends and during holidays. The Torpille team recommends this activity for children from 6 to 12 years old.
