Overall Renovation

On 18 June 2023, the people of Baden voted in favour of the city's contribution of 10 million Swiss francs to the overall renovation and restoration of the Langmatt Museum. This is a decisive contribution to maintaining this institution, which is important in terms of art and cultural history, and to enhancing its value for visitors through structural extensions. The Langmatt Foundation and Museum are very pleased with the outcome of 79.25 % 'yes' votes.

The overall renovation in 2024/25 will preserve and protect the enchanting 120-year-old villa with one of the most important private collections of French Impressionism in Europe and the publicly accessible park. In addition to the structural renovation, the foundation Langmatt must now raise CHF 40 million for its endowment fund, providing the necessary interest rates for the long-term future of the museum’s operation. To this end, the Foundation, together with Christie's, will auction one to three paintings in November 2023.

A cinematic short portrait

To mark the museum's thirtieth anniversary, a short professional film about the Langmatt and its history was produced in cooperation with Seed Audio-Visual Communication AG. The idyllic park, the historic Art Nouveau villa and selected works from the art collection can be experienced in moving pictures for the first time. With fascinating tracking shots, the film answers the question of the Langmatt's "spirit" and identity.

Our visitors can watch the 8-minute film portrait in the specially equipped Langmatt cinema.
