Museum of the Old Pays-d’Enhaut

Museum of the Pays-d’Enhaut

The Musée du Pays-d’Enhaut in the alpine village of Château-d’Oex takes you on a journey back through time. The museum includes a whole range of everyday objects showing how mountain life used to be lived along with a vast collection of paper cutting works.

The lifestyle of farmers and craftsmen has been recreated with an old smithy, an Alpine cheese dairy and a farmer’s kitchen with a bread oven dating of 1665. Likewise, the opulent interior of the families of notables has been brought alive with the help of a bourgeois dining room and kitchen, with a tiled stove and a waffle iron dating of 1581.

In addition to these everyday objects, the Museum of Pays-d'Enhaut exhibits countless drawings, engravings and watercolours representing the region, as well as period photographs showing the arrival of tourism.

Last but not least, the museum owns an exceptional collection of cutouts, which are a tradition in Pays-d’Enhaut. Over sixty works of this art's precursors, Hans Jakob Hauswirth (1809-1871) and Louis Saugy (1871-1953), are exhibited.
