Visitors with a little extra time can wallow in all things Charlie Chaplin at the new Chaplin’s World interactive museum in Vevey, about 10 miles away along the lakeshore from Lausanne, Switzerland. The attraction, located on the grounds of the actor’s last home, features acres of gardens, Chaplin’s house and the museum. Re-created film sets, sound and light shows and vintage posters are just a few of the features of Chaplin’s World, where even kids who don’t know his work will emerge lifelong fans.
Plan to spend at least three hours, and if you have a car, consider driving around Vevey, where the city’s love affair with Chaplin continues with giant frescos adorning the exterior of office buildings and even a hotel — The Modern Times — devoted to him.
In Vevey, you can also learn about the history of food at the newly reopened Alimentarium. The interactive exhibits are interesting in and of themselves, but are likely to be upstaged by the spectacle of a giant fork, known as Ze Fork, emerging from the lake in front of the museum. Continuing on the food theme, families of all ages can sample chocolate at Nest, a new factory/museum dedicated to Henri Nestlé, said to have invented milk chocolate here.
