This museum should not be missed by any visitor in Geneva. The exhibition is really interesting - four floors full of watchmaking history. You can see watches in any possible shapes and colours as well as watchmaking tools. Interior is well furnished. What surprised me unpleasantly were cards with informations about watches - some of them were only in French.... More

You are not permitted to bring bags around with you while visiting. The experience begins on the top floor and you work your way down along. The history is very interesting the... More

It is true that Geneva is a place where you are bombarded by images of watches! However, take time to go here. It costs 10fch to get in, but is worth it. The top floor gives y a potted history of the start of he company and the people in it-and it could do with a little more in English.... More

The finest watch museum in the world. First class, filled with watch making history and watches dating back over 200 years ago. Great location and a must see museum.

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.
