My husband is a watch (particularly Patek Philippe) lover and we knew this was a must-see. We were not disappointed. The collection is superb and takes you through the entire history of watch making in Switzerland. The Patek Philippe collection in particular is incredible.

So I like watches, and if in Geneva this something that the. Would probably be of interest. The museum is over 4 floors and carries a bewildering number of watches in all styles. The beginning of the tour starts with an ultra high resolution interactive video of a working watch. It's hard to describe but I've never seen anything like... More

I am not a great watch lover, but I loved the museum. I've never seen so many watches in one place. Beautifully organised, very well explained. Definitely worth a visit, for watch-lovers and others. The stuff was very kind. There is an entrance fee. You must leave your bags in a special room with lockers.

I was surprised at the vast collection of truly amazing watches. The guided tour was also very educative and gave very nice introduction to the history of watching making as well as that of Patek Philippe. Highly recommended!

So many beautiful watches. It took us about an hour to see everything. Of course, you do leave wanting to spend a lot of money on a watch. I would go again.

Even if watches are not your thing, you will be astonished, entranced and very happy that you went. You will find yourself telling your friends about it in a rapturous tone. Personally, I’ve never really thought about watches much, and I was completely gob-smacked. The museum offers a daily tour, and this is the best piece of advice I can... More

It is really important if you live in Geneva to understand this amazing heritage in time an space.. When you see the inventions made centuries before you own birth- you just have to bow and say thanks to have the privilege and opportunity to look and learn and touch the world of the inventive and the rich !

It's a nice museum showcasing not only Patek Philippe watches, but also many fine watches with lots of history. The staff was lovely and welcoming. I wish I could stay longer.
