Come visit the Rousseau Path

Rediscover Jean-Jacques Rousseau differently

At the heart of the Citizen of Geneva’s birthplace, an atypical sensory experience awaits you. Texts, films, photographs, illustrations and musical pieces all come together to offer a new perspective of Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s work. The Rousseau Path allows to modernize the philosopher’s thought while confronting it to challenges of our time: education, nature and the environment, secularism, happiness and citizenship. You can discover the Rousseau Path by yourself with a multilingual e-reader. For guided tours we kindly ask you to make your reservation at least one week ahead of your visit.
