Maison Tavel

Listed as a historic building, located in the heart of the Old City, the Maison Tavel is Geneva’s oldest private residence still standing and represents a unique testimonial to mediaeval civil architecture. Converted to a museum in 1986, its six levels illustrate the urban development of the city and various aspects of the daily life of Geneva’s former inhabitants. It also holds the Relief Magnin, a spectacular, large scale model of how Geneva appeared before its fortifications were demolished in 1850
