Running from Les Diablerets to Aigle in the Vaudois Alps, the Vallée des Ormonts is a region full of traditions and with a rich heritage. To preserve and share these traditions, the Musée des Ormonts in Vers-l’Eglise, near Les Diablerets, organises temporary exhibitions, open from Wednesday to Sunday.
Extending from Aigle to the foot of the Diablerets Massif, the Ormonts Valley is a region steeped in tradition and blessed with a rich cultural heritage.
To preserve and share these traditions, the Musée des Ormonts regularly puts together exhibitions showcasing different aspects of the valley. The history of winter sport, a journey through old photographs, the Diablerets Bitter drink, devil’s legends and 100 years of regional railway are but a few of the themes that have been covered over the past years.
Thanks to exciting interactive exhibitions, visitors come away feeling that a secret of the Vaud Alps has been revealed.
