With the assistance of Michael Chaplin and Eugene Chaplin, two of Chaplin's eight children born to him and his wife, Oona O'Neill, his home on a 10-acre estate amid nature and having spectacular views of Lake Geneva and the Alps, has become the centerpiece of the Museum complex.
Over a 15-year period, commencing in 2001, Chaplin's extensive collection of movie props and costumes, photographs, manuscripts, and other artifacts from Chaplin's long life and career were meticulously curated. Manoir de Ban, as his residence on the estate is called and where he lived for over 25 years until his death at age 88 in 1977, was refurbished, and separate structures which include an interactive "museum of his films, were constructed.
The end result of 15-years of planning and preparation is, in a word, outstanding -- and beautifully captured in the attached photographic article published by ArchDaily on July 25, 2016, which retains all copyrights therein. http://www.archdaily.com/791871/charlie-chaplin-museum-itten-plus-brechbuhl
