I finally have posted the photos from my visit on September 2 to the Swiss Museum of Games in La Tour-de-Peilz, close to Vevey, Switzerland. In French it’s called “Le musée du jeu”. If you ever pass by the French part of Switzerland, I recommend you go and see the museum, which is in a great location close to the Lac Léman. You will be greeted by its Manager, Mr. Ulrich Schädler, who will show you the treasures (many of which related to chess, of course) it contains. See the official web site of the museum for exact address and hours of operation. Below you will see some photos from my visit. There are more photos in my Photo Album Page.
Below you can see me in front of the entrance of the castle which hosts the Swiss Museum of Games
The Museum often invites kids from neighboring schools and runs fun events
Absolutely unique pieces can be seen, such as this sewing machine combined with a chess set
And this beautiful carved chess set from Switzerland
Thanks to Mr. Ulrich Schädler for his hospitality!
And make sure to go and visit the Museum if you have a chance!
