As a leading centre of expertise in the conservation and presentation of photographic heritage, the Musée de l’Elysée possesses more than a million images along with entire photographic colle tions – including those of René Burri, Ella Maillart, Nicolas Bouvier and Charlie Chaplin. The museum’s holdings are among the largest and most diverse in Europe, and document the entire history of photography from early inventions such as the daguerreotype, ambrotype and albumen print to modern digital image processing. The Musée de l’Elysée covers all artistic, social, political and cultural forms of this fascinating, everchanging medium.

The museum is housed in a mansion above Lake Geneva, built between 1780 and 1783 by the architect Abraham Fraisse.
