Very informative
Oct. 2021
Excellent museum and well worth the trip out. The number 15 tram goes straight there and the museum is excellent. Not very big and only takes about an hour to get around or longer depending upon how long you want to spend at each exhibit. Bought some books there which were very inexpensive and well worth it.

Take time for the Red Cross museum
Oct. 2021
Such a good exposure to the scope of the Red Cross' services and interests worldwide. It was an eye opener! I enjoyed the use of technology, holographs (?) to tell people's stories that illustrate the work of the Red Cross and educate about challenges affecting our human home and flourishing around the globe. Such a super museum.

I was expecting more
Oct. 2021
I was disappointed by the content of the museum. What was on display was informative and with the head-phone audio guide it was a good experience. However I expected more on the history of the Red Cross / Red Crescent. The museum is divided into four sections and there are some interesting personal stories but only one interactive display. And the restaurant was closed to the public.

Nice to see this building on a tour - it is in a nice setting on the outskirts of the city and can get there using public transportation

Interesting and impactful visit!
Aug. 2021 • Family
We visited on a Friday and were welcomed by very friendly staff. The tour is guided by an interactive head phone system providing excellent general information and more specific information at the visitor option. Routes though the museum are clearly marked. The history and strategy of the organization is explained well and examples are provided.

Personal stories
Mar. 2021 • Solo
Interesting museum but for the price of 15 CHF entrance I was expecting more. More information about the Red Cross, History of Medicine or so. Rather it is filled with interactive boards telling personal stories of people helped by the Red Cross. In the beginning just a little about the history of it is displayed. It is very modern but I was hoping for other focuses.

Very moving and enjoyable

Found this to be a very moving and very well thought out museum. It was even more poignent travelling during covid times. With some very moving photos, displays and stories. It is a worthy representative of such a worthwhile, humane organisation. It is set out in an interesting way. Staff very good as well.Extremely clean and covid secure, spacious building

I’m not sure
Sep. 2020 • Solo
Stylish and modern with good interactive screens and audio guide.
That said it felt like more style over content. Personal stories holding court rather than the actual workings and achievements of the Red Cross.
Maybe my expectations were off kilter.

While I was in the area, visited International Museum of the Red Cross and Red Crescent which was an interesting museum.
The museum was informative with lots of videos and exhibitions to showcase everything.
