Signage to the Museum was poor. Only one floor was open and it was quite uninspiring. It may have been better if I had paid for the exhibitions but other Modern Art museums are much more interesting.

Only two floors were open as they are the process of refurbishing the other floors. A wide range of exhibits. We also visited a photographic exhibition in the same building.

A fantastic array of art - Van Gogh, Monet, Carot... This was a real find with very few people making it an even better experience.

A lot of Genevois have never been there although it is one of the most interesting spots in Geneva. The concept is very fine and sophisticated. The collection is not necessarily the most updated one but plenty of jewels. It is really smartly displayed in a building certainly not designed to become a museum but it certainly improves the visit.... More

You will spend most of the time on the staircase as there is one piece per floor, maximum two. But they do a workshop for children from 4 to 10 years old on a Saturday morning at 11, where kids and parents can enjoy making their own art. You have to reserve, though.

Not for the faint hearted or the close minded. Give it a go, and maybe you'll change your perspective on what you take for granted.

Dynamic and popular small museum. The collections change regularly. Staff is friendly and keen to chat if you're not coming on a too busy day. Entrance is cheap, free for kids and students.

This is a great museum with 4 floors to visit. I was there a couple of weeks ago for the vernissage of 4 artist who were presenting their collections. I had the chance, together with the group I was with, to chat with the artists and get them to explain the collections and their inspiration. The museum has a permanent... More
