Chaplin’s World museum opens its doors in Switzerland
NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
After fifteen years of planning, Chaplin’s World, an interactive museum showcasing the life and works of British screen legend Charlie Chaplin, opened on Sunday (April 17) in the Swiss village of Corsier-sur-Vevey on Lake Geneva. The museum is set in a 14-hectare park on the estate of Manoir de Ban, where Chaplin spent the last 25 years of his life with his wife Oona and their eight children. The exhibition includes a Hollywood-style studio, a tour with images detailing Chaplin’s life and work, and a mock ‘Easy Street’ – a setting for one of his classic movies and several wax figures at the exhibition, including Charlie and his wife Oona.
