Thanks to the Federal Council's further opening steps of 26th June 2021, we are once again offering a colourful range of guided tours, talks and other events. The statutory hygiene and security measures and our protection concept apply to all events. For some events, the number of places is limited and registration is required. You can easily reserve your place via our website. For your regular visit to the museum no reservation is needed.
We are looking forward to your visit.
The Museum Langmatt opened in 1990 and is considered one of the most important private collections of French Impressionism in Europe. Together with the Art Nouveau villa and the park, the unique art collection forms an incomparable historical ensemble and a magical time capsule where inspired exhibitions combine the collection with contemporary art. In recent years, the museum has developed into a hot spot for contemporary painting and opened up to a wide range of events, from spoken poetry, pop concerts and classic car gatherings to picnics, yoga and drawing classes in the park. The Langmatt is a house of discoveries for all generations from near and far.
28.8.–5.12.2021, opening on Friday, 27.8.2021, 18 hrs.
The Langmatt Foundation, in close cooperation with the City of Baden and the Canton of Aargau, launched project Museum Langmatt – Overall Renovation in autumn 2020. Fifty architectural firms responded to the public call for proposals, six of which were invited to participate in the second round. The exhibition shows their designs for a pavilion in the park and the new entrance area. The focus is on the project by Ernst Niklaus Fausch Partner AG, the winners of the competition.
Since mid-April and until mid-summer, three bee colonies have been living on the roof of the Langmatt garage. They buzz through the flowering park and diligently collect nectar. As early as mid-June, 54 kilos of Langmatt blossom honey with a delicate lime blossom aroma were extracted from the wax combs. These are now available exclusively in the museum shop.
Jars of 250 g at CHF 11.90.
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.
Here you can see the 2-minute short version (in German with English subtitles)
On the occasion of Vivian Greven's first Swiss solo exhibition at Museum Langmatt (30.5.–22.8.2021), vernissage.tv produced a short film. The camera and editing make it possible to immerse oneself sensually in the pictures and roam along the motifs. The detailed shots allow the paintings to shine on the screen.
