Additional Information


Jean-Jacques Rousseau was born at No. 40 Grand-Rue in the old city of Geneva. Today, this simple and quaint house has been transformed into the Rousseau House Museum. Through the exquisite sound and video display, you can learn more about this Geneva celebrity, writer, The Life Trajectories of Musicians and Enlightenment Philosophers. Rousseau's father was a watchmaker, and his mother died shortly after giving birth to him, and Rousseau lived here until 1742, before moving to Paris. The former residence of Rousseau not only introduces Rousseau's life, but also collects his works, manuscripts and other cultural relics, and also provides a Chinese version of the audiovisual tour (AudioVisualTour), which is very vivid.
