Museums Night

An unmissable event for night-owls! The Vaudois Riviera Museums Association opens the doors of ten museums for a Night of discoveries...

For an enjoyable moment while appreciating the current temporary exhibitions, there are also many activities and a friendly down-to-earth atmosphere.

Visitors can also grill their ever-present cervelas sausages over the Veytaux lumberjacks’ fire or enjoy the delicious raclette serve by the Friends of Chillon Castle.

Flashes from past Museums Nights... 

Organised by the Association of the Museums of the Riviera (AMRV), Museums Night includes:

  • entry free of charge to the Museums of the Riviera
  • original and unique activities in each museum, free of charge
  • a big contest with over 100 prizes
  • shuttle buses from one museum to another
  • 10 museums take part, with a programme of highly colourful and varied events


Children are under the responsibility of their parents or accompanying adults at all times.

A small area with vending machines is at your disposal for refreshments. In the Savoy Garden there is a small food and drinks stand where you can buy drinks, ice cream and sandwiches. You can also enjoy your picnic on the beach next to the castle and even swim. There are toilets and showers available.

Please do not picnic within the castle itself.

Public Transport
We highly recommend you use public transport to come to the castle.
