Presentation
Discover a historical monument, museum and temporary exhibitions in the unique setting of the former residence of the Counts of Geneva and the Dukes of Genevois-Nemours.

Classified as a historic monument in 1959, the Annecy castle is the residence of the Counts of Geneva in the 13th and 14th centuries. Over the next two centuries, new developments give the castle this singular appearance, synthesis defensive medieval architecture and elegance inspired by the style of the chateaux of the Ile de France. Abandoned as a residence in the 17th century, it was used as a military barracks until 1947.

City of Annecy bought the castle at Defense Ministry in 1953, the first museum exhibition was opened three years later. Since that time the museum presents visitors with a variety of temporary exhibitions and collections related to the regional heritage, lakeside archeology, medieval sculpture, to landscape paintings, contemporary art and animation.
