The only thing that hinders this museum is your moral compass: how can we justify spending so much wealth on such needless exuberance? That said, it very, very beautiful. To put the experience into perspective, I recommend to all my friends visiting Geneva to also visit the Red Cross Museum in the same day, and would recommend this to others... More

Loved the museum.. it had great exhibits and interesting snippets on the evolution of watch making... Would recommend a visit if you have a whole day to spend in Geneva.. they also have a short 30 minute film on the history which I had to unfortunately skip due to lack of time.. The collections were brilliant!

Swiss are famous for watches. And here You can discover not only the history, the production (You would be astonished how much time, precision is needed) but You can also watch some of the world-renowned Patek Philippe watches. And its surely worth a stop.

Patek Philippe is the ultimate Swiss luxury watch brand. If you like beautifully crafted luxury objects and you're interested in Swiss history, this is the place to go. It's a good idea when friends and family visit from out of town, especially if the weather is bad and ill suited to outdoor pursuits. Only problem is you will leave feeling... More
