The Musee d'Art et d'Histoire (Museum of Art and History) is Geneva's prime museum, which houses both permanent and temporary exhibitions. Its permanent art collection is particularly centered around Alpine and lake scenes, portraits by Ferdinand Hodler, and works by some of the most famous artists associated with Switzerland, including Giacometti. The fine arts wing also contains works by Rodin, Cezanne and others. Other areas of the museum comprise an applied arts area (silverware and furniture) and the museum expands its show area to an elegant courtyard in the summer. There's also a bookshop, filled with research material on related subjects. Check website to know more about exhibitions and upcoming events to be held here. Entry to the permanent exhibits is free, but you will be charged for touring the temporary collection.
