Nuit des Musées de la Riviera

Last weekend was the 9e Nuit des Musées de la Riviera here in Vevey. This meant most of the museums in Vevey were open to the public for free until midnight, so we took advantage of the situation to visit a few of the Museums we had not yet been to.

We went to the Musée historique et Musée de la Conférie des Vignerons, which holds various artifacts relating to Vevey but also to the Fête des Vignerons, which is held only every 22 years, and unfortunately not while we are here. There we also heard a performance of local songs which was quite interesting. We also went to the Musée du Jeu, a games museum which was good fun, and the Alimenterium, a food museum which were were glad to not have paid money for.

It was a beautiful night to be out and about and we got to see a lot of the museums of Vevey we otherwise hadn't gotten around to. We also came away feeling a bit more like 'locals', taking advantage of our situation in the town.
