This museum, in the village of Coligny, just outside Geneva and reached by the 'A' bus, is absolutely phenomenal. If you are interested in books, it is an absolute must. Not only is Coligny a lovely spot (great patisserie, beautiful homes and gardens) the actual museum and its gardens are wonderful. But the real pleasure lies in the basement of the building, where there are two floors of some of the most incredible books you can ever imagine. It is a history of the written word and of publishing and literature since time began. The collection is like nothing you would have ever seen, and laid out in such a manner that you can really examine the calligraphy and immerse yourself in the books. The entry fee is 15 Swiss francs but we found it a sensational museum.
