    Must-see
    My wife and I visited Chaplin's World in Vevey as part of a tour group. We had no great expectations but were blown away by how good the whole place, and experience, was. What a good museum can be. We started by looking through the old home, where Chaplin lived after being exiled from the US, which was full of fascinating memorabilia, newspaper cuttings, home movies, photos, old film extracts, scripts etc. We could have spent hours in here had we the time. But we had limited time so left the building and took a stroll around the garden. Very open but with some lovely old trees. Then we went to the cinema area to watch a 15 minutes film about Chaplin. It was interesting but then the screen peeled back and we could enter a whole world of Chaplin's works. An exhibition with models, movie extracts, interactive photo ops. - the list goes on. Very, very, very well done and a highlight. Highly recommended.

    Great hidden gem in Vevey
    The studio and his home were very well done. Excellent renovation of the home. Lots of information and videos were available and displayed where you could really immerse yourself and learn a lot about Chaplin and his family. Five out of five! The admission ticket was a little expensive, though. If you are staying at a local hotel, you may want to check with them for a city pass that may give you a 50% discount.

    Outstanding Museum
    I had been wanting to visit this museum for a number of years. I was expecting its primary focus to be on his life in Switzerland. I was glad to discover that it covers his entire life and career. The museum consists of 3 components: the studio; his house, and the grounds. We didn’t tour the grounds. The studio is elaborate and provides a detailed history of his life in London and film career. There are lots of video segments throughout, great artifacts and loads of information. The house focuses more on his life in Switzerland. It also goes in to some details about his pre-Switzerland life that aren’t covered in the studio. It was also informative and extremely well done. I was pretty familiar with Chaplin prior to visiting. I learned a lot and loved it. My wife didn’t know a lot about him and she also thought it was great. We arrived by train in Vevey and walked here which took 30 minutes or so. We took an Uber back to the train station for 13 CHF. Admission is expensive @ 29 CHF but it’s worth it. This place is tremendous.

    Highly Recommend
    This was the most beautiful museum i have ever visited! The amount of detail and thought that went into this museum is apparent when you tour Chaplin’s home and the Studio. A truly entertaining and educational experience that left me wanting to know more about Chaplin’s life. I would recommend spending some time walking around the grounds and grabbing something to eat or drink in the Tramp Cafe afterwards. Definitely allow yourself a few hours to wander the museum.. there is so much to see!

    Enjoyable excursion
    Conveniently taking the bus from the Station, it was a most enjoyable excursion. Arriving before opening time it was grand to drop into the Café for a snack. It’s a marvellous exposition of the comic’s life and adventures. From his birth in London, early years and his glory time in America. An initial audiovisual is a great introduction. Moving on to the family home set in expansive lush gardens was to enjoy a picture of their family life. With his fourth wife Oona O'Neill it was a happy few decades with their eight children, in the beautiful setting. But had to smile to see that even the most famous and well connected can sometimes get tripped up. Alluding to, as outlined in the film, when he purchased the estate for peace and quiet, didn’t realise that there was a nearby shooting range. That inconveniently rattled somewhat for a time the hoped for quietude.

    A hidden gem and worth the price!
    I hesitated when I saw the ticket price. However, I am so glad that I went in! The exhibition was wonderful (and has clear explanations), and I love how the museum recreated many of Chaplin's scenes in wax and made them real. I didn't really know much about Chaplin before visiting the museum, but now I am really interested in his works! I spent around 1.5 hour at the museum but felt rushed. I would suggest at least 2 hours (45 minutes in the house, 1h in the studio and 15 min in the garden)

    For Chaplin's fans
    It's important to have watched Charlie Chaplin movies to understand everything about this museum. If not, a person wouldn't understand or enjoy the visit. Having watched most of Chaplin's movies, it was easy for me to relate to various clippings, wax dolls & items used by Chaplin in movies. Within the premises is the mansion where he lived in his last days with his wife & children. The museum is in the outskirts (not in the city centre) with ample space. So, no free car park was a disappointment.

At first I wasn’t sure about this place since I’m not a Chaplin super fan. In fact I don’t know much about him at all. But this was my favorite museum experience in Switzerland! Super immersive and chock full of interactive displays, film clips on big screens, etc. Start with the Studio experience (to the left after tickets) before seeing his Manor home. Very interesting info as well about the reasons for Chaplin’s visa to the US not being renewed due to McCarthy era. Easily accessible by bus 212 from Vevey.

The museum far exceeded our expectations!

You need to start with the short film, and then the experience builds brilliantly from there (I won’t give details that spoil the surprise). Then walk across to the Manor House (the family home) and enjoy the memorabilia.

We we could score more than 5 out of 5 we wold have done, it was that good :-)

This was the most enjoyable museum experience ever. Well worth a visit. The film clips from Chaplin’s work provided fun along the way, and the written information was just sufficient to explain and inform. There was an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment at every turn. I also came away knowing far more about Chaplin and his life than before.

A wonderful museum with a mix of videos from CC’s movies and personal life, the beautiful mansion where he lived and the fantastic view of the lake and mountains.
