Intro

The Art and History Museum has over 7,000 exhibits on display, ranging from prehistoric finds to modern paintings. The Musée d’art et d’histoire, which opened its doors in 1910, is the largest art museum in the city of Geneva and home to an extensive collection by the eccentric and distinctive Swiss portraitist Jean-Etienne Liotard.

One of Switzerland's most important museums is housed in a building constructed between 1903 and 1910, situated east of the Old Town of Geneva. Thematically categorized and separated collections are displayed in an area of 7,000 square meters. Important finds dating back to early history, prehistoric times and antiquity can be viewed in the Archeology Department.

The Department for Applied Art exhibits Byzantine Art, icons, musical instruments and textiles. The sector devoted to fine arts houses collections of paintings ranging from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. Furthermore, the collections include numerous works by Ferdinand Hodler, Félix Vallotton and Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot.
