Time Out says

Challenging art in a mock Renaissance environment

The canton's Fine arts museum is housed in the singularly unadapted Palais de Rumine, a late 19th-century building in Florentine Renaissance style. Plans to build a more suitable venue have been afoot for 30 years and are at last materializing. By 2017 it should have moved to a museum complex that is being custom-built by the Lausanne's train station.

In the meantime, the museum maintains an adventurous programme that alternates between regional artists of international stature, like Jacques Vallotton or Charles Gleyre and the seriously avant-garde.
