During an afternoon, the Swiss Museum of Games welcomes Seniors to share a moment playing classic games. 

Games have an important role to play for all ages, especially for the brain. Indeed, board games stimulate memory, concentration and reflection, and promote sociability. Whether for pleasure or to maintain one’s intellectual abilities, every Tuesday, the Museum offers seniors to play chess, checkers and Mah-Jong, over a cup of tea or coffee. A guide will be present to supervise the participants and advise them. For those who wish more variety, other classic games will be available, such as cart, dominoes etc.


Registration required, limited places
