Currently the Musee Rath is showing an excellent exhibition of Switzerland's leading painter, Ferdinand Hodler. The lighting is stunning and the well illustrated themes makes for an enlightened appreciation of this painter, whose works are difficult to find outside the country.

This is a small museum near the old city. When I visited, there were interesting photos and etchings as well as a 360 degree interactive art item. The museum was smaller and for the price (unless you have the Geneva Pass) is not worth it.

I've seen the "panoramas" exhibition, which attempts to bring together a number of visual samples of the word's various meanings. Before the invent of cinema, panoramic paintings were a kind of funfair attraction. Along these lines, a short from 1900 by Thomas Edison shows a...More

Spent 10mins there and clueless what the exhibition was about. It was a collection of fabrics, maybe is about dying? The locker is CHF2 but is refundable just like any museums in Switzerland

Great location near the Grand Theater. Major complaint: no explanations in English; really unfair and diminishes from the exhibit's educational impact. Service and explanations by reception were kind of unpleasant. There are lockers for a 2 Swiss Franc deposit.
