“A great museum and art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

A fantastic array of art - Van Gogh, Monet, Carot... This was a real find with very few people making it an even better experience.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

A lot of Genevois have never been there although it is one of the most interesting spots in Geneva.
The concept is very fine and sophisticated. The collection is not necessarily the most updated one but plenty of jewels. It is really smartly displayed in a building certainly not designed to become a museum but it certainly improves the visit.
Whilst not for everybody, but difficult to say ex ante, it is worth giving it a shot.

“very small”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

You will spend most of the time on the staircase as there is one piece per floor, maximum two. But they do a workshop for children from 4 to 10 years old on a Saturday morning at 11, where kids and parents can enjoy making their own art. You have to reserve, though.
