En Famille au Musée

Visiting museums as a family

Based on a concept of the Association of Museums of the Riviera (AMRV), this family weekend event, is an opportunity to visit local museums free of charge and to take part in many different activities.

At Chillon Castle, workshops on old-time crafts and know-how invite families to re-discover noble materials, such as leather, wood, bee’s wax and many more.


Children are under the responsibility of their parents or accompanying adults at all times.
The visit to the castle can be truly wintery... Make sure to dress warmly!

A small area with vending machines is at your disposal for refreshments, but please do not picnic within the castle itself.

Public Transport
We highly recommend you use public transport to come to the castle.
