A day in the life of Calvin

Beginning April 24 and lasting until Oct 1, be sure to experience : “A day in the life of Calvin.” Dr. Isabelle Graessle and her staff have put together a state-of-the art exhibition. Extremely modern museum techniques will allow in this exhibiton to experience the Reformation and what most preoccupied Calvin, in a virtual interpretation. 

Visitors can follow a day in the life of Calvin, from getting up at 4.00 to going to bed around 21.00 h. In between they can see the Reformer at a service in St Peter’s Church, at a lively session of the church council or at a decisive meeting with Michael Servetus. In each of the eight pavilions they will encounter a three-dimensional, speaking Calvin, hear the voices of his friends and enemies and the tumult of the city, and thus discover the life not only of the Reformer but also of everyday Geneva. 

Place: Geneva: International Museum of the Reformation, 4 rue du Cloître
Opening times: Tuesday to Sunday, 10.00-17.00 h
