Whether an animated projection in the old fire station with an explanation of the events surrounding the battle, a look behind the scenes during the creation of a masterpiece in the museum or the revival of the panorama in the LACabane: There are many facets of the famous panorama image with the moment of turning illuminated victory of the Confederates on June 22nd, 1476.

The three-part exhibition around the battle panorama continues the alternative program to the Murten Light Festival and connects the cultural institutions of the region. The result is a complete exhibition at three different locations in Murten and in the nearby Muntelier. The exhibitions work together or individually, so that individual visits are definitely worthwhile.

Battle panorama - en lumières - a 270 ° light show
The “Battle Panorama - en lumières” breathes new life into the famous battle panorama by the artist Louis Braun and takes visitors on an animated journey into the Middle Ages. This projected panorama is set on the walls of the old fire station at Bernstrasse 9 (a few minutes' walk outside the Berntor in Murten). Thanks to the 270 ° projection, guests immerse themselves in the year 1476 in a 15-minute show. A historic year that not only wrote Swiss history.

Museum Murten - creation of a masterpiece
With his Panorama of the Battle of Murten, created in 1893, Louis Braun achieved a masterful work that shaped his time and continues to fascinate today. How did the artist stage this event? What were his sources of inspiration? What means did he use to arouse emotions? The exhibition shows the genesis of this masterpiece and lets visitors experience a journey through time with various depictions of the Battle of Murten.

LACabane Muntelier - Looking back at the restoration of the battle panorama
The battle panorama, which has been forgotten for many years, recedes into the limelight. The monumental object was painstakingly restored until its full splendor was shown again in the monolith on the occasion of Expo.02. This year's exhibition takes visitors on a tour and shows detailed views of how the panorama was kissed awake from its slumber. In a small space, the LACabane impressively shows the dimensions of the imposing object.
