League of Nations Museum


League of Nations Museum

Harshly criticized, too soon forgotten, the League of Nations (1919-1946) is a cornerstone in the development of international relations during the first half of the 20th century and in the creation of “International Geneva”.

The Museum of the League of Nations displays rare, unique and original archives in a critical context that examines the League’s place in the increasingly important area of transnational history.

Visitors of the Permanent exhibition “From the League of Nations to the United Nations” are guided among these fragments of memory, which reanimate the history and personalities of the League. The hopes and challenges of a pioneering organization are illustrated, providing crucial insights for contemporary issues. A complete tour of the Museum includes a chronology and newsreels.
