Musée Suisse du Jeu_1

Swiss Game Museum

On the banks of Lake Geneva, the Swiss Museum of Games perpetuates the joy of playing games in its ‘Games Castle’; since 1987, it has remained the only museum in Switzerland dedicated to the cultural history of games – and now enjoys an international reputation.

The Swiss Museum of Games perpetuates the joy of playing games in its “Games Castle” which also holds a Scrabble Championship as well as awale and bridge lessons, poker, chess or backgammon tournaments, along with games of croquet, games of skill, role-playing games or video games and more unusual games and juggling. It also organises games workshops for children. In the attic of the castle, there is a historic collection of games from ancient times to the present day, while the ground floor is used for events.

There is also an outdoor game trail, between the ramparts and the castle, overlooking Lake Geneva.

Does playing games make you hungry? If so, Restaurant Joker offers a large terrace, drinks and affordable menus.

This museum expresses its objective in fun way: to promote the culture of playing games as an element of the universal cultural heritage.
