Swiss Museum of Games

Planning a trip to Switzerland soon?  If you're on Lake Geneva near Montreux, you might be surprised to find a museum dedicated to board games!  The Swiss Museum of Games (Musee Suisse de Jeu) occupies a castle directly on the lake and it looks like they have great exhibits and activities!

I hope someday I can get over there and check things out first-hand.  It looks like right now they're doing a cool exhibition on Mahjong that ends this month.  Their permanent collection has a potpourri of games from many different cultures.
