The Museum of the Reformation is a must-see for religious visitors to Geneva. The location itself is historic: The building once served as an apartment complex for Huguenot refugees, which was in turn built on the ruins of St. Peter's cloister.

The museum begins with an emphasis on the Bible-a key Protestant tenet-and includes some of the oldest French language Bibles in the world and Calvin's biblical commentaries. Other highlights of the museum include caricatures and pamphlets used to argue Protestant or Catholic perspectives; multi-media presentations that explain the views of various 16th-century intellectual and religious leaders; and a 15-minute audiovisual program that explains the history and implications of the Reformation.
