We happened on the museum by chance, walking around the Old Town and were the only visitors on a Saturday morning. The visitors card from our hotel reduced the admission from Chf6 to Chf3 per person and gave us a fascinating hour and a half of the history of the area, woodworking, farming, quarrying etc etc. Well worth a visit

I love this museum; it is all located in a very old house and is very atmospheric in giving an idea of how people lived in times past. It is not especially children-friendly in that there is more looking & reading than activities (so not like a UK museum!) - my kids enjoy it, but will whizz around in an... More

Thanks to people who worked... More

This museum in an old house in the old Vieux Montreux is worth a visit during a rainy day, and gives an insight into how life was before Montreux was created in earlier in the 20th century. Roman coins and the like are on display, as well as period furniture. The nearby Caveau des Vignerons provides an excellent and authentic... More

Visited in August with 3 children. We used the riviera card ( a new thing i think?) the total cost was only 3 francs-unbelievably good value. Very friendly receptionist who chatted to the children and praised their (poor) french. We took about an hour to do the whole thing as the children don't look for very long at any one... More
