Description: Museum of the History of Sciences in Geneva is unique in Switzerland. It is also an excellent display case for the city's scientific past, which was particularly outstanding in the 18th century.

Situated in the park Perle Du Lac at Villa Bartholoni (one of the most beautiful neoclassical houses, built in 1828).
Inside the villa, the rooms are decorated with wall paintings which are among the most accomplished of the Pompeiian style.

The collections are composed of numerous old scientific instruments (microscopes, barometers, sun dials, astrolabes, etc.).
