Chaplin's World in Switzerland – level 2

Chaplin's World in Switzerland – level 2

26-04-2016 15:00

After 15 years of planning, a museum called Chaplin’s World opened in a village on Lake Geneva. Chaplin spent the last 25 years of his life there with his wife and their eight children.

The museum showcases the life and works of Charlie Chaplin, the London-born comedian. The exhibition includes a Hollywood-style studio, images, and a mock "Easy Street" – a setting for one of his classic movies. There are more than 30 wax figures, including people who were important to him, like Albert Einstein, and artists, like Michael Jackson.

Charlie Chaplin and his wife had to leave the United States in the 1950s during the McCarthy Era because people thought that he like communism. The actor died on Christmas Day in 1977 at the age of 88.

Difficult words: showcase (to show), exhibition (a show in a museum), mock (not real).
