Maison d’Ailleurs

The Maison d’Ailleurs science fiction museum is a unique institution, combining an exhibition space and documentation centre. Located in the centre of Yverdon-les-Bains, its exhibits cover themes at the crossroads between popular culture, contemporary art and science.

Situated in the centre of Yverdon-les-Bains, the Maison d’Ailleurs is the only Swiss museum dedicated solely to popular culture, inviting nature lovers or the curious to travel around a centre of gravity where science and art are fed by the imagination. Twice a year, the museum puts on an original exhibition, drawn from its collection of 130,000 objects, along with contributions from prominent artists. Internationally renowned, its exhibitions travel around the world.

Connected to the Maison d’Ailleurs, the Espace Jules Verne has one of the biggest collections dedicated to the famous French author.

This modern, animated museum regularly organises original events and is ideal for children with its interactive activities, workshops and guided tours.
