One of Geneva’s oldest houses, the Maison Tavel was constructed in the 14th century and is a beautiful example of medieval architecture. The house was destroyed by a fire in 1334 and was again rebuilt by the Tavel family.

Over the years the house has been the possession of influential families and was later acquired by the City of Geneva in 1963. After this acquisition the Maison Tavel was converted into a museum in 1986. Spread over six levels the museum helps visitors understand the urban evolution of the city and many different facets of the history of the city and its people.
