The Chateau d'Annecy is the museum in the small city of Annecy in the Southern part of France. It has a great collection of various forms of arts such as impressions and paintings and also has an amazing view of the city..!

Lovely restored French Castle above the old town of Annecy. A short walk from the town will get you to this impressive building. Houses a museum.

Nice little museum. Small exhibits of archaeology, ecology, Lake Annecy, etc. Has potential to be much better. Best thing about this museum are the views of the lake and downtown. First Sunday of the month is FREE from Oct to May. 10-12am, 2-5pm.
