I'm running behind on my Trip Advisor reviews so I don't know whether the fabulous exhibition that combines both the history of photography and Geneva is still on but if it is, it was one of the best displays of historic photographs that I have...More

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.

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.

This is an art museum situated in a beautiful setting, right next to the Grand Theater and close by the reformation wall. It is pretty small and thus not large enough to house permanent collections. When I went, there was a temporary contemporary art exhibit....More
