Les combles du Château, le grenier d'un musée Château de Nyon
Castle of Nyon Nyon Région Tourisme

The attic of the castle, the granary of a museum - Nyon

The Castle of Nyon now has a new permanent exhibition in the attic.

In 2006, when the castle reopened after six years of work, the presentation under the roof showed objects found in the attic, but also in other places and buildings in the city of Nyon.

This presentation was able to be repeated, expanded and modified. It is the one we are offering you today, with, in particular, more mysterious and moving lighting, sound effects, sometimes almost imperceptible and nevertheless present, and often unexpected movements.

As for the objects on display, they include both the furniture of the former courts and the detective novels read by prisoners in their cells. There are also signs of disappeared inns (La Croix Blanche, Le Guillaume Tell), crates for Sangal pasta, weather vanes (a rooster that has been shot, a golden angel with flickering wings), advertising images for shows from the 1940s, an unusable pianoforte, a reproduction of the castle of Nyon in matches, a bicycle that toured the lake in 1906, wax and sound models - a little disturbing in their pallor - and old portraits stored in the semi-darkness of the place.

A whole cohort of characters and sounds in the subdued atmosphere of an attic with the indispensable owl that made its home there 13 years ago.

Unfortunately, the exhibition is not accessible to people with reduced mobility.
