The Archive of the Museum

The archive stores HD digital images of all of the museum exhibits, as well as a small audiovisual archive which will be incremented in the following years.  

The photographic archive collects pictures of our collection items, the museum's history and of Serge Brignoni. It can be consulted by appointment and upon formal request to the museum director. The reproduction of archive pictures is only permitted with a fixed fee for each individual publication.

For any request please send an e-mail to:

The museum will only send the ordered images upon receipt of payment. The copyright notice must be clearly pinpointed as “©[current year] FCM/MUSEC, Lugano". 

The archivist and the museum’s scientific staff offers a personalised research service which costs CHF 50.- per hour.
