This museum is larger than any other museum in Geneva. The Art and History Museum chronicles and catalogues a comprehensive study of western culture, from ancient to modern times, including current issues. It contains in its collection over one million pieces, classified into three separate wings of the buildings. The Archeology wing houses relics from ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman civilizations. The Fine Arts wing is home to paintings from the Renaissance era onwards, including works by renowned artists like Van Gogh and Renoir. The third wing, the Applied Arts wing displays weapons, household items, including furniture, cutlery, decorative elements, and other objects of daily life from the medieval times.
