The museum is located on the estate of the Manoir De Ban on the Swiss Riveria where Chaplin spent the last 25 years of his life. It can accommodate up to 150 delegates for conferences and dinners and up to 200 for cocktail receptions.
It offers views of the Swiss countryside and gives delegates an insight into the intimate family life of Chaplin, as well as his Hollywood existence. The museum opening coincides with the 127th anniversary of his birth and houses sets from iconic Chaplin films, 30 wax figures of twentieth century celebrities, an outdoor forum, cinematic presentations and a gallery of graphic artists from around the world.
Olivier Mathieu, congress and meetings manager at Lausanne Tourism & Convention Bureau, said: "Our whole region is delighted to be opening the Chaplin’s World Museum, which is an excellent new addition to our collection of cultural attractions that offer unique exhibition and event experiences, such as the Castle of Chillon and The Olympic Museum. We are certain it will become one of Lausanne region’s most prestigious attractions."
