Maison d’Ailleurs

Maison d'Ailleurs (translated as “House of Elsewhere”) is a museum of science fiction, utopia and extraordinary journeys in Yverdon-les-Bains (Switzerland). It is a non-profit foundation functioning both as a public museum and a specialized research center 1).

Copyright: Maison d'Ailleurs

The archives of the museum contain around 70,000 documents related to science fiction or utopia (books, art pieces, toys, etc.), including some very old (as early as the sixteenth century) or unique pieces. The collections of the museum are used for iconographic purposes or research (literature, history of ideas, design, etc.). The Maison d'Ailleurs thus represents an important research and documentation center 2).

In parallel, the museum presents from two to three temporary exhibitions per year, around the main themes of science fiction (cities of the future, space travel, lost worlds, etc.). From November 17, 2019 until October 23, 2020 the museum organised an exhibition called Mondes (im)parfaits based on the work of Schuiten and Peeters.
