Museum of the Hand - UNIL-CHUV

The Hand Museum presents interactive exhibitions on topical themes that concern everybody.. An exciting and original way of looking at our society.

It proposes thematic exhibitions and contributes in a dynamic and inventive way to the comprehension of scientific and medical innovations in order to trigger citizen debates. The themes are always positioned at the crossroads of sciences, medicine, biotechnologies, history, arts and society.
In addition to the exhibitions, an intensive program of activities, encounters and debates on current scientific and cultural themes is proposed on a regular basis. These are addressed to the younger audience and schools as well as adults.
The Musée de la main is working in partnership with the University Hospital of Canton Vaud, Lausanne (CHUV), the University of Lausanne (UNIL), the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL). Many other institutions support the museum, depending on the themes selected in the exhibitions and activities. A great number of museums and lenders of works of art also trust the Musée de la main.
