Oldest remaining house in Geneva has collections of pewter, wallpaper, old doors and coins. They provide Information booklets in different languages. The amazing model of the city before the protective walls were torn down is the best thing about it (fourth floor).

Maison Tavel can be a nice place to discover with visitors while visiting Geneva city center on a Sunday. It is a free historical house, where are exposed furniture, homeware, paintings, miniatures, plans describing how houses and urbanization changed over centuries.

Obviously the relief map of Geneva scores, but the whole thing is so beautifully low key.

There's no pretension to "fine art"; this is just how (fairly well off) people lived.

I loved the domesticity
