Morges Castle and its museums

Morges Castle dates back to the foundation of the town by Louis of Savoy in 1286. The fortress was built according to the "Savoy square" model to protect the town against the Bishopric of Lausanne.
Nowadays, the Castle houses five museums which are much appreciated by visitors to Morges. Impressive: historic weapons and uniforms abound in the Vaud Military Museum. Fascinating: 10,000 miniatures are on show in the Swiss Museum of Historical Tin Figures. Awesome: over 40 cannons dating from the Burgundy Wars are displayed in the Artillery Museum. Astonishing: the history of a venerable Vaudois institution is narrated in the Vaud Police Museum.

Situated in the old Bernois granary from 1991 to 2016, the Paderewski Museum is now established in the Morges Castle and displays a new design which is both modern and interactive.
The museum brings memories of this musician and politician alive with the help of archived documents, a huge library, recordings and some of Paderewski's belongings. Discover his story, and learn how this pianist became a true hero of the Polish cause during his country's most difficult years.
