Museum open

We are happy to welcome you to the Château de Prangins during regular opening hours. For your safety, please take note of theprecautionary measures. Due to the official regulations, the number of people permitted in the museum is limited, which can lead to waiting times, especially on weekends.

Due to these restrictions and the high attendance of our exhibition GAMES, we have temporarily introduced a ticketing system per time slot of max. 30 minutes for the visit of GAMES. Therefore, you will only be granted access to GAMES during the time slot indicated on your ticket, but will be able to visit the rest of the museum during the entire day. We apologise in advance for any inconveniences caused.

Due to the ban by the Federal Council on gatherings of more than five people inside, no guided tours or events will take place until further notice.

We continue to welcome schools and kindly ask you to please register your visit in advance on +41 22 994 88 90 or info.prangins@museenational.ch.
