If you appreciate a fine time piece, nothing else needs to be said. Or should be. A generous tour through horologic history.

The museum has a vast collection of time pieces through the ages detailing styles as well as commissions... More

What a great place to learn about the history of horology in Geneva! Every timepiece is an object d' art here. There are even some displays that show the inner workings of the mechanisms. The historic 2nd floor is the most interesting, priceless Jewel encrusted Louis XV egg clocks and amazing 19th century pocket watches; although the first floor does... More

Patek Phillipe Museum will be adored by watch and time fanatics. Time pieces from every era. You will come away impressed by both the art and craftsmanship that go into a watch. Watchmaking was one of the earliest precision manufacturing industries. And the Swiss were and are the best. So you'll appreciate why the Swiss are cultural nutcases about time.... More

My husband is a watch lover and was looking forward to the visit. I went along, but found the historical collection fascinating! It was a bit tricky to find, but well worth it.

We visited the place and they had a good student discount! There were different stories for different times of the company's history and the place was like a five star hotel. The staff was clearly professional and helpful. There were maybe a bit too many clocks and watches to see so it was quite a lot for a person who... More

This museum is more than a Patek museum... Its an homage to the wonderful world of watchmaking, tracing back generations of engineers focus on developing perfect mechanics
