I learned some stuff

A modest sized museum but a great history lesson. I learned a lot about my wife's Heugenot background, which I had not expected.

This museum was the main reason we made the 3 hour train journey from Zurich to Geneva and it was well-worth the effort! The engaging displays had been carefully thought out and were highly informative. They covered a wide range of topics, issues, events and key figures relating to the Reformation. Although the signage was in French, the English audio... More

High quality museum that definitely deserves to be seen bit at 13 francs per adult it is a little steep especially considering Maison Tavel and the museum of Art and history are totally free.... Anyway, your call.

I very highlights of the history of the protestant reform, and how were difficult for the oldest fathers of the faith, generate a strong defense to the new ideas of the love of God. Good souverniers shop.

Compact museum located next door to the cathedral. Interesting mix of traditional displays of objects and more modern interactive exhibits. The gallery on the French wars of religion is extremely comprehensive. The exhibition in the basement on modern day Protestantism is also worth a look. Oh and in the shop you can buy a playmobil figure of everyone's favourite protestant... More

Went there with family visiting Geneva. The museum is really interesting and full of information provided through different media. The audio guide is perfect. Lot of interactive activities. Great explanation of the birth and evolution of Protestantism.

Musee de la Reforme is a very small museum located in Old Town Geneva in the premises of a typical house on the site. But I guess this site is quite accurate as the history of the Reforme itself refers to groups of people reunited in houses in the past to bring up/ impulse changes : from the dominance of... More

There are a LOT of items on display, but none have English descriptions. There is an English audio guide, but it is limited. WARNING: No air-condoning (if you need it)

This is a great museum! They have really good and interactive material that helps visitors to understand much better the Reformation in this region as well as the culture and ideology of Geneva. I enjoyed it a lot, in despite of the fact that I had a knee surgery and was using crotches, which made it complicated for me to... More

The city of Geneva is really into the Reformation so this is a good museum to visit to understand part of the culture of Geneva. The displays were nicely done and it gave a lot of good information about what happened during the Reformation.
