About the museum

The Maison Tavel (Tavel house) is the oldest private residence in Geneva. This remarkable example of swiss civil architecture bears the name of the family who owned it from the late 13th to the early 16th century.

Since 1986, this historical building has been home to the Musée d’histoire urbaine et de la vie quotidienne (museum of urban history and daily life). The engravings, paintings, maps, models, furniture and miscellaneous objects presented come from Geneva’s public collections and evoke Geneva’s
past and its inhabitants from the middle ages through to the 19th century

    Most interesting how much even the oldest places have been modified, rebuilt, and refashioned generation after generation.

    Lieux chargé d'histoire extrèmement intéressant. De plus le personnel du musée nous guide avec beaucoup de sympathie. J'ai adoré la visite ! Je recommande l'audio guide qui est simple et efficace pour comprendre la visite. En revanche il n'est accessible que via un smart phone. De plus il n'y a pas de wifi à disposition, il vaut donc mieux y aller bien équipé...
