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 “Plateforme 10”.

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 and refurbished once the temporary containers used as works offices are removed after completion of the second building.
