Hr Giger Museum, Gruyeres Reviews

  • A look inside the mind of a warped genius. Several of the works are X-Rated and not age appropriate for young children regardless of whether they are in the "adults only" room or not. The museum itself is impressive for the attention to detail and the juxtaposition of its location in the beautiful Gruyère.

  • Genius. A dark look to prolific creativity. Museum layout is well planned down to the textured floor. No photos so you'll have to go in person. They take credit cards. Entrance fee extremely reasonable. I would have bought something at the gift shop. I agree with other reviewers, it didn't carry much. The walk is nice from the train station - skip the bus. Adjoining gallery was open featuring another creative mind.

  • All his creations are at display here. Perfect place for sci fi nerds. They have a store where they sell tshirts and all. If you don't like dark places, I say you take a walk through the village instead.

  • Amazing place for any fan of this mad genius. A whole floor dedicated to his alien fans No pictures allowed. Which they had more merchandising to buy. Everything was jewelry or books over a 100 euros.

  • Fascinating look into the mind of a dark, creative genius. Get a discount on admission to the Chateau when you buy your ticket for the museum at the same time.
