About
Casino Barrière de Montreux is home to the legendary “Mountain Studios” which has seen a parade of artists such as David Bowie, The Rolling Stones or Queen walk through its doors. In 2013, the venue was renovated to include an exhibition space entirely dedicated to Queen, which recorded six albums there between 1978 and 1995.

    It’s A Kind Of Magic
    Must visit whether you’re a Queen fan or not. Provides much insight into the making of the albums with many artefacts, right through to the ‘Made In Heaven’ album which Freddie Mercury sadly never got to see the final release. Don’t miss the small theatre hidden in the corner which provides more entertainment and history. Also will tell you all about the origins of the statue of Freddie on the Montreux waterfront.

    Amazing
    This attraction s free, and amazing. Housed in Casino in Montreux on the site of their original recording studio. It's free, has many pieces of memorabilia and an interactive experience with the mixing desk. It only takes an hour and you can also donate to AIDS research.

    A Queenie’s Dream come true
    As a Queenie for almost 50 years I was excited to visit the Queen Studio Experience. I knew ahead of time what I would likely see, due to seeing the pictures others have posted. What I enjoyed most was seeing the hand written lyrics, and the studio equipment. Playing with the mix of “Made in Heaven” a little was also fun. This is a Queen fan’s bucket list item, but others will find the band’s history interesting. The exhibit is very much heavy on Freddie Mercury, as it is supported and arranged by the Mercury Phoenix Trust. If you’re in Montreaux it’s worth seeing. Free entry with suggested donation to the trust.

    Very Good if you are into Queen!
    More my wife's thing than mine, but I could appreciate that if you are a Queen/Freddie Mercury fan you would be in heaven. Loads of photos, artefacts and memorabilia and plenty of opportunities to hear recorded tracks of Queen music. Free to enter, donation suggested, set in the Montreux Casino, where even at 2.00pm people were gambling their life savings away.

Small museum inside the casino. Very informative. We were there when the auction of Freddie Mercury's things was being conducted in London. It was also right around his birthday.

Given the band’s long association with the gorgeous city, it was interesting to see this tribute to their fame.

Much memorabilia is on display, which undoubtedly is joyful for the many devoted fans.
