Hr Giger Museum - Review

Hans Rudolf "Ruedi" Giger was a Swiss painter and was a part of the special effects team of the Academy Award winning movie ‘Alien’. In the year 1990, on the occasion of his 50th birthday, HR Giger was invited to display his unique and intriguing collection at the Chateau de Gruyeres. He fell in love with the town and in the year 1997, he acquired the Château St. Germain with the motive of establishing his own museum. On display at the museum are artefacts from Giger’s different creative periods. Many a visitors feel they have stepped onto another planet when they step inside the museum!

Hr Giger Museum, Gruyeres Reviews

  • Absolutely amazing. Giger is my favorite artist and this place captured spirit of his art perfectly. BTW this place and art is not suitable for young children. It's at least 15+. Maybe think twice before you bring your young ones here. Nightmares guaranteed.

  • Mind blowing art although I’m not a fan of aliens and sci-fi genre. Pay attention to details and glance through the book at the reception to find explanations. Visit coffee shop without excuses.

  • The alien artwork is terrific if you are a fan of the movies. Everything else is just a little bit disturbed.... 😄

  • In short excellent. Truly an amazing collection of the man work. Several floors of funny windy corridors and odd shaped rooms totally adds to the madness of the artwork, finished off in an attic space with an exhibition of Giger inspired pieces from other artists. I’ve been an admirer of his works for a good number of years, though never fanatical, but to see these pieces up close and realize the scale of some of them was truly awesome. Pieces range from sketches to full painted works, as well as alien models and an amazing dining table set! Mind blowing. You can’t take pictures inside which is a shame but totally not surprising. We didn’t manage to get into the Giger bar/restaurant as as you can imagine it was packed, but peeping though the window you can easily see the incredible decor and from what we’ve heard it well worth trying to get in. All in all so worth a visit when in the tiny magic town.

  • Just wow! Stunning place, "must visit", but think twice about taking your children with you (lot of different sex stuff beside of "for adults only" room). Tickets are for free if you have Swiss Travel Pass. Giger Bar is in the next building.
