Museum of Payerne
The Museum of Payerne is actualy closed. The permanent exhibition of the Museum presenting General Jomini and the artist Aimée Rapin is available on request.
Among these objects you can find the famous "saddle of the queen Berthe", which in fact is a saddle of a bourgignonne competition.
In 1955, the museum had four halls. In 1958, after Albert Burmeister died, who had looked after its development during almost fifty years, closed its doors. In 1965, the hall of natural history had to be evacuated to free space for the college.
The museum organizes permanent expositions of Aimée Rapin (an artist without one arm) and the General Antoine-Henri Jomini (originated from Payerne, great tactician, military writer...)
