We had a great moment at the museum. You'll find unique watches in a great space. We were very surprised to see timepieces from other watchmakers, which made the visit even more interesting. The only sad thing is that pictures aren't allowed inside :( But a must if you love history and watches.

Good experience although the exhibition on the top floor with the videos could have been planned better so there was less waiting around to do the interactive activities.

Wonderful selection of Patek Philippe and antique timepieces, all delicately detailed and carefully displayed. Besides these displays there are short introductions to the history behind Patek Philippe, and on how many pieces are manufactured

Had a free pass so visited, it had a good collection of antique Pateks, including those commissioned for the KIng of Thailand a century ago. For watch enthusiasts. May look like an ordinary watch gallery for those who dont know watches.

So many interesting watches, Antiques, complicated multi-function, plain, highly decorated. Really interesting to see/understand the inner workings. Thought I'd breeze through but ended up spending 2 hours.

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!

Seems like PP has updated their top floor to the state of the art which gives it an air of fanciness that you don't want to miss. Still, the floors below are just mind numbing in that they are presented very, statically and by that I mean that if you're not a huge watch history freak, you might not find... More

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.
