Voltaire Institute and Museum

A documentation centre dedicated to the philosopher and to the 18th century as a whole.
Discover the "Saint Jean Property" where Voltaire lived during his stay in Geneva between 1755 and 1760.

Today this property hosts the Institut et Musée Voltaire, with a library holding an average of 25,000 volumes. It is open to all researchers and readers eager to discover more about Voltaire's life and work, and beyond - with respect to the 18th century as a whole. Twenty-five thousand prints, over a thousand manuscripts and numerous iconographic documents constitute the library. A reprography service is available. In addition to the permanent collection, the museum offers a temporary exhibition.
