Plateforme 10 – Lausanne

A brand new building for the “Musée Cantonal des Beaux Arts de Lausanne” is now open for business – first part of a greater cultural project named “Platforme 10”. It could be no closer to the Lausanne railway station, and named appropriately to reflect such proximity to the existing nine passenger platforms.

The museum is constructed on the site of the old engine sheds and incorporates the original east wing of that historic construction.

The engine turntable is to be retained also.
