  • One of many museums in Geneva you should visit, it is almost impossible to miss this huge building. You can get into the building for free and they have many interesting ancient tools completed with informative board in front of every tools.

  • 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.

  • Awesome cultural spot in Geneva located near the city's lake. This is a must and nobody should miss it out. Paintings, sculptures and architecture are shown. Free admission and super clean toilets available.

  • 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 several floors of wonderful exhibits. The Egyptian area was my favorite with a large collection of statues, scrolls, sarcophagi, and other items. Also Roman and Geneva history. The building itself is beautiful with a nice courtyard in the middle with old stone slabs. Highly recommended!
