I didn’t visit the museum itself, but I took a moment to enjoy the view from the unique public square out front — it’s on a dock, sitting in the Rhone (right as it exits the lake). You reach the museum as well as the...More

A beautiful and serene place, all in ethetics, creativity. The exhibitions I saw were all wonderful, especially Osamu Oshida. Nice lounge spaces as well. Good vibes.

We went to see the Swatch exhibition. But found so many other pieces of art I think the Swatch exhibition probably got the least amount of our time! You can see the Jet D`eau and the hall is very well laid out.

Stopped in to see the Swatch exhibition, and found two other very interesting Art exhibitions. Swatch collection interesting, but short on story (basically an example of every Swatch model since they started, but no explanations)

Watch collection. Nice little cafe. Variable museum collection on the ground floor. Great location. Not a destination attraction but the reviewer who says it is the "worst ever" clearly has not been to some of the places in the world that I have!

There's literally nothing there: just Swatch watches (reportedly all the models ever created) lined up endlessly, with barely a word of explanation and a couple of old commercials. By the way, I never realized until now that Swatch was making such ugly watches... I don't...More
