The museum was founded in the late 19th century by Gustave Revilliod to house his vast collections. Émile Grobéty was the initial architect but once construction started in 1877, he was overwhelmed by the scale of the project and replaced by the more experienced Jacques-Élysée Goss. The museum opened its doors to the public in 1884.
