Located in the centre of the village Brè, the Museum is dedicated to the work of the painter Wilhelm Schmid, an exponent of the German New Objectivity of the 20s, who moved to Ticino in 1937.

In 1982 the building was restored on a project of Architect W. Eberli and now strikes the visitor as a small cultural reality capable of maintaining intact the atmosphere that surrounded the artist.

Since 2017, some rooms of the museum host annually, for a couple of months, an exhibition promoted by the Circolo Pasquale Gilardi "Lelèn" dedicated to one of the artists present in the artistic installations of Brè.

After the debut exhibition dedicated to Aligi Sassu in the spring of 2017, the second edition, which will take place from 7 September to 28 October 2018, is dedicated to the conceptual artist Gianfredo Camesi, a Ticino artist of international renown.

The exhibition, curated by the same artist and exceptionally planned on all levels of the museum, will host some emblematic works of his artistic career: installations, large canvases and works that dialogue with his artistic installations of Bré.
