For over 30 years already, the world's first-ever food-themed museum has been sharing a global and independent view of the many aspects of the human diet. Its multidisciplinary, cultural, historical, scientific and nutritional-focused approach and its bold and original programme of activities have established the Alimentarium as the world's leading food-themed attraction. As the centrepiece of the Museum, the new permanent exhibition "Food - The essence of life" invites children and adults alike to take a fresh look at an activity steeped in history and laden with emotional significance: eating. The unique new scenography, combining discovery, experimentation and learning, invites visitors on a fun-filled, interactive journey through three new sectors: Food, Society and The Body. Enlivened with projections, interactive terminals and video installations, this immersive experience will make visitors aware of the influence diet can have on the body and its environment.

The museum is small and simple, I dont even understand why they call it "museum", it doesnt really look like one. Anyway, it was nice and I dont regret spending one our of my holydays there. The view from the main window is spectacular

When we visited the museum was scheduled to be closed for a refit. While it was an enjoyable and interesting place to visit as a family group, some of the exhibits seemed a bit tired and grubby/worn. That said, I would be happy to visit...More

Not much thing to do in Vevey, so after/during the walk by the waterfront it is a nice spot to spend some time with a bonus for the best photo stop of Vevey Bay.
