It's all possible now that an ambitious, immersive museum showcasing the life and works of the filmmaker has opened in Switzerland.Chaplin's World, 15 years in the planning, premiered in the picturesque village of Corsier-sur-Vevey on Lake Geneva one day after what would have been the British screen legend's 127th birthday. The museum is set on the vast estate of Manoir de Ban, about 26 kilometers from Lausanne, where Chaplin spent the last 25 years of his life, dying in 1977 at age 88 .Chaplin's 70-year-old son Michael recalled what it was like living in the mansion, with around a dozen servants.A separate building has been built nearby as a large mock-up of a Hollywood studio dedicated to Chaplin's on-screen work which began around 1914 .Chaplin's World is also dotted with more than 30 wax figures created by the Grevin wax museum in Paris.In one glass showcase there is the certificate signed by Queen Elizabeth II when Chaplin was knighted in 1975 .
