“The Museum of Art and History is the city's largest and one of its most important institutions. The museum is housed within a building designed by Marc Camoletti and constructed from 1903 to 1910; the building's exhibition space covers four floors and 7,000m². the building itself is a treasure with an inner courtyard, and a façade featuring sculptures by Paul Amlehn and a triangular gable with an allegorical depiction of the arts. In a frieze on the upper section of the façade, there are the names of Genevan artists. The collections are divided into thematic categories focusing on Applied Arts, Fine Art, and archaeology. There is an art section in the museum with paintings from the middle ages to the 20th century including works by Konrad Witz, Rembrandt, Modigliani, and Rodin. An Applied Arts section has Byzantine art, medieval weapons, silverware and historic musical instruments among the collection. Part of the museum has been turned into the 17th century interior of the Lower Castle Zizers complete with wood paneling and furniture.

“It was in the 16th century that the first names of Swiss watchmakers emerged and Geneva became the birthplace of watchmaking. At the time, following John Calvin’s reform, Genevans had to follow a dress code and dress as simply as possible. But refusing to take off all adornments, the people of Geneva decided to buy watches and, to meet the demand, jewellers retrained as watchmakers. So this is how the Genevan artisan watchmaker was born. A mix of tradition and precision, Geneva is today the symbol of fine watchmaking.”

“La vieille ville, plus grand centre historique de Suisse, concentre quelques uns des lieux d’intérêts emblématiques à voir lors de votre visite de Genève. Elle se visite très facilement à pied, et voici quelques un des endroits à ne pas manquer: La cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Genève et la chapelle de Macchabées Le collège Calvin, qui date du XVIème siècle et est le plus ancien de la ville. Le Parc des Bastions. Le mur des réformateurs. La place du Bourg-de-Four, avec sa fontaine et ses nombreux cafés et restaurants. La façade du musée d’art et d’histoire est superbe. De là part le célèbre passage dérobé « Degrés de poules », qui mène à la cathédrale. La promenade de la Treille. La maison Tavel, plus vieille maison privée de Genève, aujourd’hui transformée en musée. La tour du Molard: Bon, ce n’est pas tout à fait dans la vieille ville, mais juste à la sortie, sur la place du Molard. Alors si vous passez par là, vous n’allez pas cracher dessus 😋. Elle date, sous sa forme actuelle, de 1591, dispose d’une horloge et est ornée d’armoiries liées à l’histoire de La Réforme et de Genève. Lors de votre visite de la vieille Ville de Genève, prêtez également attention aux noms des rues: les rue du Purgatoire et la rue d’Enfer côtoient la rue de la Croix d’Or et la rue de Toutes Âmes! ”
