The only small negative is that we were not clearly advised there are two types of locker, requiring different values of (refundable) coin to make them work. That aside, this is an impressive place to visit. The watch/clock making tools and work stations are very interesting. The grandfather/grandson themed (?) information film is a bit clichéd, over sentimental and, for... More

They have a wide variety of watches - old and unique pieces, watches with different mechanisms, watches in different pieces of jewelry like rings, bracelets and pendants and more. They also showcase how the watches were made in the olden times and the transition in it from then to now.

Careful with schedule because it's closed very often. This museum is just amazing. It goes back in the history of watchmaking, and specially the one from Patek Philippe which is one of the most prestigious brand in the world of watches. There is also the most complicated watch ever produced in exhibit.

This museum is a must for any visit to Geneva, three floors of incredible timepieces with intricate design not only of the actual watches but the cases as well. The collection is displayed in easy to view cases with several magnified so you can really appreciate the design. Although many of the watches are not actually going they have all... More

The Patek Philippe museum is one of the gems in Geneva. It is a brilliant panorama through all the magnificent watchmaking history of Patek Philippe and of the watchmaking industry. The displays are out of this world and if you like top craftmanship combined with artistic talent, you should not miss it. If you can, try to arrange for a... More

The Patek Phillippe Museum is simply out of the world. If anyone remotely has any liking for watches this is THE place to visit. For me it seemed like my personal paradise. The range of watches from 1530 onwards, the Patek Phillippe collection and the fact that every watch has been maintained in perfect working condition was amazing. There are... More

Patek Philippe has created magnificent timepieces and other mechanical marvels for centuries. This museum displays the finest of their work,... More

Absolutely beautiful space dedicated to the history of watchmaking and Patek Philippe. We decided to check out something to do with watches while in Switzerland and found this included in the Swiss Museum Pass. Tours in English are offered weekly on Saturdays; we decided to pass and look for ourselves. While other tours are ongoing, it can be busy and... More
