We visited the museum and attended the English speaking tour which took place at 2.30pm on a Saturday. We were treated to the history of watches and watchmaking via the Patek Phillipe tour guide. She showed us the museum which is set over 3 or 4 floors. It was filled with priceless antique watch treasures as well as the modern... More

A must if you are a watch fan. The museum is very interesting and the collection goes back to the beginning of watchmaking. Staff is helpful if needed, but otherwise you won't notice them. Centrally located in Geneva

One can actually learn alot here so the guided tour is suggested. From the rise of watchmaking in Switzerland after Louis XIV's revocation of the Edict of Nantes to later development of the company Patek Philippe by its Polish-French founders and further commercialisation worldwide by Philippe Stern.

The Patek Philippe museum is definitely THE THING TO DO in Geneva, especially if you're visiting for the first time. Ingenious works of the watch masters spaced across 5-6 floors of the museum - great cultural time passing.

fo me as a watch fan it was amazing. The best museum in my life, you need at least 1,5 hour to see everything with attention. I really recommend this beautiful place with history!

Once in a lifetime one must spend a couple of hours (not even that) to understand the world of watches and the Pateck Philippe is the place to go. The display is elegant and the watches fantastic. The history of watchmaking is well presented and the miniature work of the enginers impreses. It is a 3 stars attraction not because... More

May be I expected the inner mechanisms to be exposed so that my teenager gets some interest. However, it turned out to be an exhibition, nonetheless an excellent collection, of watches as they were first invented through their industrialisation- including a number of fashionable pieces. So, if you are looking for educational corners or enlarged demo pieces showing the movements,... More

If you love watches, then this is the place to go. If not, do not bother to make the effort. Although the museum is elegant and has very beautiful items (mostly watches) it is not a place that holds interest for more than half an hour. Entry fee is 10 for adults and 7 for students. Too much to pay... More

Adults enjoyed the visit much more than 10 and 12 y olds. But kids get in free. The history of watchmaking is presented in a very organized and interesting way. Parking on the street was available, but limited our time to 2 hours. I would probably spend a little longer there. Strangely many of the exhibits were only in French......... More
