The Musée Jenish is a museum of fine arts and prints at Vevey in Vaud in Switzerland. It was set up on 10 March 1897, thanks to a legacy of 200,000 francs from Fanny Henriette Jenisch (1801–1881), wife of Martin Johan Jenisch, a senator of Hamburg. It was designed in the neo-classical style by the architect Louis Maillard and Robert Convert.
