Musée du Léman

Discover all the different facets of the largest lake in Western Europe in a
unique museum on the shores of Lake Geneva. Find out about the people
who live by the lakeside, through a unique collection of objects, documents
and small-scale models relating to the navigation of the lake, the reconstruction
of an authentic fisherman’s hut, a lifeboat or steam boat engines.
Relive the adventures of the Piccard family with their submarines and balloons,
learn about the high stakes involved in water issues and admire the
various species of fish living in our region in our aquariums.
