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!

  • 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.

  • Awesome museum! Of course it's not for everyone but if you know Geiger and like his style, this is a must do. The museum can take from 1 to 2 hs to complete. There are 4 floors with a wide range of things. It really contrasts with the peaceful scenery of Gruyeres. And afterwards you can have a beer in the "Geiger Bar" that's right outside the museum, it's also great. Absolutely no pictures inside the museum, so I can't upload anything.

  • It was very squeaky and very dark though there was a large collection of his work available. I made the mistake of taking my 2 children & its totally not suitable for children. They do warn you but I honestly thought it would be less inappropriate & more sensored. This made me rush through the collection. Must admit, he had a pretty twisted mind! Don't know if I'd want to meet him!

  • 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.

  • Magnificent. You're not allowed to take photos inside the museum, but do look up at the ceiling when you enter the first upstairs room.
