Maison du Salève Tours

Maison du Salève
Perched in the shadow of Mount Salève, the Maison du Saleve is an 18th century farmhouse dedicated to showcasing the relationship between man and mountain. With exhibits, workshops, guided walks, hikes, and an exhibition for children, there are plenty of learning opportunities. There are also some incredible views — from the exhibit’s photography to the outlook over Lake Geneva and the Mont Blanc mountains. The mountain has affectionately been called the “Balcony of Geneva.”

La Salève has a long legacy of scientific study, and is also considered to be a birthplace of rock climbing and mountains expeditions. Permanent and temporary exhibits detail the history, study, and sports of the mountain. Guided walks in the nature around the museum allow for the best immersion in the surroundings, and bikers will appreciate the cycling paths weaving throughout. The whole experience is family-friendly and accessible from Geneva, which offers access via its city pass.

Practical Info

The Maison du Salève is located just over the border from Switzerland to France, and takes about 30 minutes driving from Geneva. Guided tours are available by appointment, or the exhibits can be self-toured when the museum is open. Note that operating days are limited to Wednesdays and weekends, and that opening hours change seasonally.
