NEW
The whole story of the Roman Museum of Nyon

Guided tour in town and at the Museum

How was the Museum born? Where were its collections stored? What are the choices that lead to its actual scenography? Why are its walls red? Did you know it had an nuclear shelter?

This visit explores the history of the Museum by talking about the various decisions and convictions of the people who followed its creation.

1h30, CHF 130.- (entry fees not included), max. 25 persons.

The black moon visits
Guided tour in the dark, with flashlights. The participants may take their own flashlights.

On the new moon's night, explore the Museum under the light of Hecate's torches, goddess of the Moon, fearsome queen of the shadows, at the crossroads between the inferno, the earth and the heavens... But don't be afraid: she has a lot of stories to tell you.

WHY HECATE?

Hecate is a Goddess originally from the oriental parts of the Roman Empire, where her worship is most known. In our region, her presence is so rare, that the discovery of a stunning figurine representing her is astonishing and raises a series of fascinating questions.

1 hour, CHF 100.- (entry fees not included), max. 15 persons.
