Collection Baur - Review
Alfred Bauer was a prolific collector of art who has left Geneva with a huge and fascinating legacy; His entire collection. If you are a lover of the arts this one is a definite must see in Geneva.
The collection certainly has its fair share of paintings but there is a lot more. Collectibles and trinkets from all over the world, embellish it. You will be able to see an amazing variety of art here. Over a 9000 pieces including snuff boxes, laps, statues, figurines etc. are a part of this astonishing collection. The swords collected from various countries and eras are lovely as are the lovely ceramics and jades.
With so much to see make sure that you have enough time to explore everything in the museum while planning a trip to it. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Geneva itinerary 2 days.

Collection Baur, Geneva Reviews
NO bags whatsoever, however small - not even a tiny bag with your passport and valuables. NO cameras allowed. Very snobbish. Undoubtedly a fine collection, and a very nice example of a visitor-hostile museum
Although not huge however decent size, it's quality is worth the time.
Better go to the Museum of Ethnography of Geneva (MEG) which is new, big and FREE! It also has long opening hours. But forget this Foundation Baur which is small, posh and disappointing.. Entrance fee 10 CHF is expensive for the very little they show. And opening hours very reduced : only from 14 to 18:00. My god, this Baur Foundation is a wreck!! Forget it!
Nice place to go
Their thematic temporary exhibitions are always fascinating, but for anyone interested in ancient Chinese jades and ceramics their permanent collection is a must see. Also very interesting is their collection of tsuba, netsuke and other traditional Japanese apparel.
