Art and History Museum Neuchâtel

A treat for the eyes and a mirror on the world

The permanent exhibitions on display at Neuchâtel's Musée d'art et d'histoire (MAHN) – situated in an exceptionally beautiful spot – are well worth a visit. They showcase the region's historical and artistic heritage most notably by means of a carefully selected permanent display of the museum's collections (sculpture, applied art, history and coins). They also trace the thousand year-long history of the city of Neuchâtel. MAHN regularly presents new temporary exhibitions as well.
