Association of the Musée des Ormonts

In 1979, Mme Suzanne Combremont, former teacher at Les Diablerets, left a legacy to the commune of Ormont-Dessus to establish a regional museum. This idea took shape in 1989 when the Association of the Musée des Ormonts was established. It included the communes of both Ormont-Dessous and Ormont-Dessus.

The association set the following objectives for itself:

  • to gather, colllect, conserve and inventory the culture of Les Ormonts  (objects, documents et images, sound recordings and films etc)
  • to study and carry out original research about the speech of Les Ormonts,  with testimonies and sound recordings: about specific subjects such as the road, natural risks, photography etc.
  • to communicate knowledge and expertise to the public, through exhibitions, publications, themed tours, architectural visits, conferences, providing access to documentation.

Over the years these objectives have been achieved by presenting touring exhibitions and by publishing books and sound recordings.

You can join the Association and support its activities by becoming a member for an annual fee of:

  • individual member 30 fr. ( + 1 free entry per year)
  • couple or family 50 fr. ( + 2 free entries per year)
  • business 100 fr. ( + 4 free entries per year)

Send a message to info@museeormonts.ch with your first name, surname, and address, and we will send you a membership certificate and the statutes of the Association. You will then be regularly informed of the Museum’s activities. Many thanks for your support!
