Musée d'art et d'histoire

Musée d'art et d'histoire

An encyclopaedia of cultures from the prehistoric to contemporary periods.
Multidisciplinary in its approach, Geneva's Museum of Art and History invites visitors to travel back in time, and to cover all the important stages in the history of Western civilization.

Inaugurated in 1910, the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire is one of the three largest museums in Switzerland and the only one with such a wide range of collections, the result of the merging of several regional museums and donations from collectors, foundations and philanthropic citizens. The richness of its collections is further enhanced by the presence of major works and several unique series, making it an institution of international standing.
