“The Museum of Art and History is the city's largest and one of its most important institutions. The museum is housed within a building designed by Marc Camoletti and constructed from 1903 to 1910; the building's exhibition space covers four floors and 7,000m². the building itself is a treasure with an inner courtyard, and a façade featuring sculptures by Paul Amlehn and a triangular gable with an allegorical depiction of the arts. In a frieze on the upper section of the façade, there are the names of Genevan artists. The collections are divided into thematic categories focusing on Applied Arts, Fine Art, and archaeology. There is an art section in the museum with paintings from the middle ages to the 20th century including works by Konrad Witz, Rembrandt, Modigliani, and Rodin. An Applied Arts section has Byzantine art, medieval weapons, silverware and historic musical instruments among the collection. Part of the museum has been turned into the 17th century interior of the Lower Castle Zizers complete with wood paneling and furniture. In the archaeology, the section pieces from prehistoric Europe, ancient Egypt, African, Greek, and Roman cultures. Other interesting pieces in the collection are medieval stained glass, 12th-century armor, Swiss watches, and Greek vases.”

“The building has laundry machines however it is too complicated for me to let the guests use it as it works on schedules. Therefore if you need to wash your clothes please go to this self-service laundry located in front of the building.”
