Located on the shore of Lake Neuchâtel, the Art and History Museum presents collections from antiquity to the present day in an area of almost 2000 m2. The new permanent exhibition “Movements” offers a fresh, interdisciplinary perspective on mobility. What are the profiles and the reasons behind migration?

What roles are played by wars and international trade when it comes to people moving? What is the nature of the goods produced and what strategies are deployed to export them? What are the links between commercial networks and the slave trade? What are artists looking for under distant skies?
