Temporary exhibition | 25th January - 19th May 2019

Once Upon Many Times

Eve, Noah, Moses & Many Others

From January 25th to May 19th, 2019.

Fifteen wonderful stories from the Bible come to life at MIR: on the last floor of the Tower of Babel, with Jonah in the belly of the fish, aboard Noah’s ark…Visitors are immersed in a colourful and vibrant universe designed by drawing and writing virtuosos.

Artist Serge Bloch and writer Frédéric Boyer have teamed up to recreate for a public of all ages and background the poetic world of the Old Testament’ founding stories. Animated short films are playing on one, two and sometimes three screens displayed across all rooms within the museum’s permanent collections, along with illustrations, drawings and texts that are both artistic and informative.

Actor André Dussolier performs the voice-over.

Open all days from 10 AM to 5 PM except Mondays.

Prices: CHF 13 / 8 / 6 including access to both the temporary and the permanent exhibitions.

Past exhibitions

« It was a great experience during the Museum Night 2018. We had a super guide who has shared a lot of interesting facts, who was very professional and passionate. I had a chance to make use of the Gutenberg press. Would love to come back with my friends and family. »
