Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel its a museum showing  Friedrich Dürrenmatt's paintings and drawings. The CDN is a unit of the Swiss National Library.
After Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s death in 1990 his former house and garden were donated to the Swiss Confederation and Swiss architect Mario Botta designed the plans for its conversion into the CDN. A new entrance tower was added next to Dürrenmatt's existing house and the curved exhibition room built into the natural slope of the garden. Construction started in 1998 and the inauguration happened in the fall of 2000.
