About International Museum of the Reformation

The International Museum of the Reformation (Musee International de la Reforme) in Geneva presents the story of the Protestant Reformation which occurred in Switzerland in the 16th century.

Spread over some twelve rooms, the International Museum of the Reformation looks at this important event and the history of Protestantism from its very beginnings, exploring it through the ages and brings it right up to present day. The exhibits use a variety of media to do this, from historic items such as paintings, original manuscripts, engravings and religious objects through to modern media including films.

There is also significance to the Maison Mallet, the 18th century building where the International Museum of the Reformation is housed as it sits on the former site of the cloisters of St. Pierre Cathedral. It was also the former home of notable Huguenot, Gedeon Mallet.

Entry includes a free audio guide, available in French, German and English.
