While on a bus tour, we stopped in Montreux and had the chance to go through this museum. If you are a big Queen fan then you will want to stop here. If you are a rock and roll fan, it is an okay stop....More

Nice, free museum and studio experience. Lots of memorabilia. Would be even nicer if you could take home a CD of your own sound mixing attempt..and would make them more money for the foundation. There is a Queen commemorative coin machine just outside the studio....More

This is a very small museum, just two room inside the Montreux Casino. It is free, so you can’t go wrong, donations are requested. The exhibits are costumes and album memorabilia, the most fascinating items are the hand-written lyrics of Queen songs. The second room...More

A poignant reminder of the loss of the great talent that was Freddie Mercury....The original studio Queen bought in Montreux, with videos, costumes and lots of other interesting artefacts from this memorable group.

Unusual, quite small but very interesting with memorabilia, hand-written lyrics and a thoughtful video made by other Queen band members. Also has the benefit that you can watch the punters at the tables in the casino below, as well as being free to enter!

Free admission.Donations go to the Mercury Phoenix...More

I am not sure about camping but Switzerland is very expensive in general. Dining out will be very costly, as will standard accommodations. There are a few grocery markets in town that will cut down on your expenses if you... More
