A dinner was launched in the honor of hirotonia of our Lord Alexandre of Russian Orthodox Church in Geneva. Everything was very well organized. Starting from reception till the very small details during the dinner was perfect. The waiters were very well organized. They had served till the very end with smile and professionalism. The only remark, the museum has no cloakroom with attendant so we had to keep our coats on our chairs. It is very pity, as the tables were covered with white cloths and napkins and a coats on the chairs were breaking the solemnity of the atmosphere.
Cool little museum with a good variety of statues, artifacts and paintings. Self guided tour is easy and 1st sundays a month are free
What a gem. It's not a huge place but we had a lovely time. Definitely worth the visit if you have couple of hours to spare.
Not crowded, clean, well organized. There are some relevant items from famous artists.
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.
