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.

The temporary exhibitions take up exciting aspects of the history of the city of Neuchâtel. The museum currently displays 200 objects illustrating the advertising-specific work of the Neuchâtel company Suchard. Famous motifs such as the Milka cow, Suchard Express and the Toblerone are exhibited.

    Choc! Suchard fait sa pub


    The chocolate industry has always been one of the most dynamic advertising sectors. The Suchard company, founded in 1826 in Neuchâtel, played a pioneering role here. Starting from a wealth of advertising media, ranging from posters and packaging to promotional films, the museum lets us discover the legendary motifs that became famous: the Milka cow, Suchard Express or Toblerone.
