Musée d'art et d'histoire

Of a multidisciplinary nature, the institutions constituting the Geneva
Musées d’Art et d’Histoire extend an invitation to take a voyage back
through time, punctuated by the important stages in the history of
Western civilization. At the heart of this network lies the Musée d’Art
et d’Histoire, which with its archaeological, applied arts and fine arts
collections is present at two other venues as well: the Musée Rath and
the Maison Tavel.
Inaugurated in 1910, it is one of the three largest museums in Switzerland and the only one with such a wide range of collections.

This museum greets you in the following languages: D/F/E

10 MILLIARDS D'ANNÉES

-
10 milliards d’années, c’est la durée de vie estimée de notre Soleil : arrivant aujourd’hui à mi-course de son cycle, celui-ci finira par se transformer en géante rouge d’ici 5,5 milliards d’années et consumera une grande partie de notre système.... Mais de quel temps parle-t-on? Celui universel et quantifiable par des instruments de mesure? La nouvelle exposition du MAH explore cette notion plurielle, et pose plus précisément la question du temps des horloges en regard du temps des artistes.

The exhibition is documented in the following languages: F
