Musée régional

Regional Museum

The association Pro Grandson is responsible for the exhibitions pertaining to the region. Housed in four rooms within the castle, the visitor will find objects and tools on view, dating from 4000 B.C. to 400 A.D., most of which were found on the shores of Lake Neuchatel when the level was lowered in the 1870’s. Great quantities of artefacts were found at the time and an entire period of human history was “La Tène” named after a village on Lake Neuchatel.

Two rooms exhibit aspects of everyday life, mostly dating from the 19th century. The items displayed were chosen by school children from among the collection of objects belonging to Pro Grandson.

One room is dedicated to temporary exhibitions, which usually form a link to the region.
