International Museum of the Reformation

Interesting
Indissociable from the city of Geneva, the Reformation movement has at last opened the doors of its own museum, following the efforts begun nearly 40 years ago by Pastor Max Dominicé. Open since 15 April 2005, the museum is located in the Maison Mallet on the site of the former cloisters of Saint Peter. The quality of the documents available for viewing is quite exceptional, and engravings, paintings and manuscripts, including some very rare works on the war of religions, relate the history of this movement born in the 16C. Films, a music room and a variety of events that will appeal to young and old alike complete the museum.
