open-air museum dedicated to urban art
in Le Locle
All sidewalks lead to art
The soul of the Neuchâtel Mountains inscribed on the walls
Each year, the exomusée is enriched with creations by international figures of the street art scene. Monumental frescoes or graffiti to discover at the corner of a street, these works echo the questions of our time and shed new light on the history and the peculiarities of a city of character, distinguished by UNESCO for its watchmaking architecture. Thanks to the talent of artists who sometimes work at dizzying heights, the public space of Locle turns into an open-air museum over time.
Synonymous with creativity, freedom, generosity, sharing and courage, the street art movement is often militant, nomadic, sometimes rooted but always curious to confront the unknown and otherness. The exomusée’s collection reflects the exotic outlook street artists have on the region.

Exo = open air
The exomusée invites you to go out into the open air to satisfy your appetite for culture during a unique urban stroll.
- May -
In Le Locle, during the month of May, the frescoes bloom like daffodils. Coming from Switzerland, Holland and France, armed with brushes, rollers and bombs, four street artists, including a famous collective, arrive in town to enrich the route of the exomusée.
If, after a rather chilly spring prologue, the return of fine weather makes you want to reshape the curve of your calves, without neglecting your intellect, we invite you to (re)visit the exomusée.
