International Museum of the Reformation

Interesting
Inseparable from the city of Geneva, the Reformation movement has at last acquired its own museum. The quality of the documents available is exceptional, and engravings, paintings and manuscripts, including some very rare works on the war of religions, chart the history of this movement born in the 16C. The handsome central room, decorated according to 18C tastes, shows a 15min film. Further on, a virtual banquet provides a chance to "hear" Rousseau and Calvin.
