Opened in 2005, the International Museum of the Reformation in Geneva vividly depicts the history of the Reformation initiated by Martin Luther, John Calvin and others. Drawing on numerous archival documents and a rich iconography, the Museum provides a detailed chronicle of the Reformation, from its origins to the present. The Museum is winner of the 2007 Council of Europe Museum Prize. The IMR is located in the Cour Saint-Pierre, on the site of the cloister of Saint-Pierre where the vote was taken for the Reformation in Geneva in 1536. An underground passageway connects the museum to the archaeological site under the Saint-Pierre cathedral.
