While the history of the Fine Arts museum in Le Locle goes back to the foundation of the Fine Arts Society in 1862, the museum had to wait until 1913 before moving into its own building, built in 1906 by architects Jean and Eugène Crivelli. Its Art Nouveau architecture has been preserved until today. The museum later extended to the neighbouring telephone exchange building from 1931.
