Overview
More
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.

This symbol of Vevey (beside the Charlie Chaplin statue) is situated in front of the Food museum and is connected with one of the past exhibitions in the museum. The fork was so interesting for the tourists and probably also for the residents of Vevey...More

There are three Nestle Museums, but we visited just this one. Located opposite the Charlie Chaplin statue and the large fork just off-shore, it’s about a twenty-minutes’ walk along the lake-front from the Nestle Head Office. The friendly receptionist asked if we’d like to return...More

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
