Setteled in the 16th century castle, in the heart of the historic village, the museum presents mainly objects and documents about small boats of transport called "cochères",  and the former boats transporting heavy raw material with large and beautiful triangular sails, symbols of Lake Geneva heritage.
The museum also broaches the life and activities of the human community of the village at the time of the boats: crafts, exploitation of the chestnut and forests, transport of wood... A room is dedicated to the steam boats of Lake Geneva.
