Art Museum
“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.”
