Fondation Martin Bodmer

Collecting the written records of human civilizations, Fondation Martin Bodmer will charm you with words from over three thousand years.

by Carla Projansky

This exquisite private institution is a very special place, a library and museum dedicated to the written word. The foundation's collections include rare printed works—both Eastern and Western, original editions, papyri, illuminated manuscripts and hand-written documents by many of the world’s true geniuses. This is a veritable treasure trove.
