Museum Of Art And History - Review

The Museum of Art and History or the Musee d’art et d’histoire is a wonderful museum to visit in Geneva. If you are a culture seeker or an Art lover, this one is a certain must visit. It is once of the biggest museums in Switzerland and an institution to be reckoned with.

They have a vast and varied permanent collection and are responsible for documenting the latest art work from around the world. The collection includes art work from a very wide variety of genres including contemporary art as well as archaeological art-pieces. The sculptures, paintings, objects of art and decorations do not just depcict the progress of art over the ages but also the way life depicted in the paintings has changed over the years.

This two fold meaning given to the exhibits through their distinct theme makes it a very interesting place to visit in the city. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Geneva itinerary 1 day.

Museum Of Art And History, Geneva Reviews

  • My favourite museum in Geneva. It has got multiple floors of history, art and surprises. There is definitely something for everyone. One could easily spend hours inside taking in the sites and knowledge that this museum has to offer. I highly recommend the place and motivate others to visit.

  • I loved it! It's very spacious and people do not have to squeeze..thus there's no over crowding! Art on display is amazing. Plus every first Sunday of the month, entrance is free! My favorite European museum so far.

  • Great museum with a free admission for the permanent collection. It has archaeological section with Roman and Egyptian artifacts and also a fine arts floor full of paintings from many artists including Van Gogh and Picasso. It also has a very nice restaurant/cafe in the open courtyard where you can rest and have a bite to eat after walking around.

  • Short review: not a good place for family’s with young children/babies who want/need to bring a buggy. Long review: I had made sure I’d checked the website for access details as I’m always worried we won’t get round somewhere with the buggy. I may have missed some fine print or possibly there was more info on the French site, who knows. But it said disabled access available which usually means buggy’s are good to go also. We started our freezing cold windy day by doing a full circle of the building as it was obvious from the large flight of steps and small door way that the main door was not the for mentioned access. When we did find the door it turned out we had to be “buzzed” in through a large service entrance and taken up by a staff member to the museum. If I was a disabled person I would of felt totally embarrassed and degraded. We decided to eat first. Now I must mention that the food was excellent, however it was in the form of a strange fine dining kind of experience which only added to the bewilderment and uncomfortableness we already felt as it didn’t feel particularly welcoming to us and our 6 month old son. So on trying to navigate the museum a few things become apparent. Firstly the service lift we had come up in had put us at the end of the first lot of exhibitions, so we had to walk “backwards” through everything only to then double back in order to find a second lift to the rest of the museum. Secondly the signposting is utterly horrible and unhelpful. Thirdly after eventually locating said lift (my husband had to go on a small expedition to find it as staff weren’t very helpful) we had to go back out into the freezing wind to use it and then on trying to leave the museum were told we couldn’t go the quick and easy way back through the exhibits but in fact had to go right the way through everything from the first room to the last!? Utterly ridiculous! All in all the complete weirdness and difficulties trying to navigate the museum completely overshadowed what are in fact quite nice exhibits. Such a shame

  • It would be worth visiting it for the building alone. But then inside you can find some significant collections of archaeological value, from Ancient Egypt, Prehistoric times, Ancient Greece, and collections of paintings and art objects from many ages. On the ground floor they have also an impressive collections of armours and weapons from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Incredibly kind and helpful staff, cute Museum Shop, a nice café. Will definitely go back for more.
