Fair disclosure: I adore watches. I have a lot of them. I want more. So, yes, I'm happy to spend hours in a museum where you can't take pictures and can see hundreds of years and millions of dollars worth of human brilliance. But I think that those who aren't "watch fans" might still appreciate the sheer impressiveness of this... More

It will be better if there are more descriptions. Besides, some of the existing descriptions do not have English translations, could have done better. There was a previous comment saying this museum is free, it is not true, it costs 10 CHF.

Visited the museum with friends from Belgium on a very rainy Saturday afternoon. We very lucky that when we arrived a guided tour was about to begin in English. The guide was excellent and provided a wealth of information on the museum. The museum itself has an extensive array of very interesting items, but unfortunately there is not enough space... More

If you are fond of watches this is a must go. Three floors of Swiss watches history from the most technical to amazing jewellery watch pieces. A good outing when it rains in Geneva.

If you are interested in mechanics and watch making - this the museum for you. Absolute impressive collection of watches from estetic and mechanical point of view. Curiously, after the 1960s pp lost it completely re design and you wont find any examples of contempory watches

Stunning collection and void of meaning in some cases where translation is not provided. Considering the number of English speaking guests in Geneva and the international nature of the brand it would seem obvious to use some of the money collected from the cost of admission to make the entire collection accessible to English speaking patrons.

You can have an amazing trip back in time by visiting the watch museum. Even if you are not really interested in the subject, you will find it amazing and overwhelming. Open only on afternoons, check on website. Totally worth spending 2 hours there.

We walked a long way there...and found they were only open in the afternoon?? Really?? We wanted to go it, and I can't comment on the contents...but my advice is to check the hours of opening before you make the trip.
