I would recommend to take a guided tour through the museum (each saturday at 2.30pm in english), since there are a lot of watches and clocks and its pretty easy to get lost.

The Patek Philippe Museum is an elegant tribute to the watch through history. The focus of the museum is the watch and the history of the Patek Philippe company. There is just enough translation of information into English to make sure you get the highlights and changes in technology over time. The watches are beautiful and it is fun just... More

Not sure what I expected but I was slightly disappointed. It seemed to me the museum was all about the end product and not enough on the watch making processes maybe because they don't want to give too many secrets. This is pretty much like any other watch museum, nothing particularly special here, such a shame.

Okay, yes, I'm a watch freak so I LOVED this museum - if you are that into watches, I'd suggest skipping the 3rd floor and just focusing on the 1st floor which has the modern Patek Phillipe watches. We spent 90 minutes but you could breeze through in an hour or less. Lighting was fantastic and really allowed you to... More

Filled with beautiful watches over the past 400 years. No cameras or bags are allowed in the museum and lockers are provided to leave all belongings. Ok for kids although ours became a bit board after a bout 20mins.

This is a very interesting little place and one of the best attractions in Geneva in my opinion. There is a very large watch collection, from even before watches were created; showing the history of watches in chronological order. Also shows the craftsmanship of creating these amazing timepieces.

As a watch collector I was overwhelmed by the number of watches/clocks on site. The quality of the pieces was amazing and the information provided for each piece was excellent This is a must see museum, highly recommended, check opening times as it opened at 2pm
