A Castle of Games

Games are much more than a pastime, they are a real cultural acquisition. Wherever people come from, whatever their tradition, people unite in play by communicating spontaneously and naturally.

Interactive and inviting, the Swiss Museum of Games inspires you to travel through the fascinating world of games from ancient to modern times. Some will be familiar to you, others surprisingly unknown: the "Pachisi" from India, the "Awelé" from Africa, the "Nyout" from Korea... In other rooms, you will be attracted by the intrinsic risk of Casino games. Moreover, games of skill wait for you to test your agility.

An unforgettable visit connecting past and present!
