Located in the old town, Maison Tavel a multilevel reconstriction of is the oldest house in Geneva and offers visitors a fascinating look into Geneva's history. Don't miss the 3D model of the city. The bonus here is that for the permanent exhibition there is no entrance fee.

I love visiting old things - especially buildings because it makes me wonder how they can be kept so well built! So the opportunity to visit Maison Tavel - the oldest residence in Geneva - was a delight.
Lots of exhibits on Geneva's city history so it's an educational visit as well. There is a 3D map of the 1850s Geneva at the top floor - which always fascinates me how cities have grown and changed.

The oldest private housing in Geneva, it is now a museum for art and the history of Geneva. Maison Tavel is often hosting local artists that showcase themes about the Swiss region.

Se trata de la casa privada más antigua de Ginebra, hoy convertida en museo. Es un edificio medieval, muy bonito, en el que se puede ver el desarrollo de la ciudad de Ginebra y la vida de los habitantes a lo largo del tiempo. Es muy interesante para conocer la historia de la ciudad.
