“Great experience and interesting expo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Touching experience in a perfectly carved exposition. Newly reopened after works, it's now very modern and yet gives the history of the Red Cross the tribute it deserves!

“Great museum, Very high tech.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Hi tech museum, with great audio visual displays. The building is very nice, it sits across from the UN building. There is an audio for you to listen. Very clean and informative.

“So so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Went to the new Red Cross museum. It is very high tech and modern looking but I think it lacks any depth . It is worth going to after you have seen the other sights in Geneva. If you read a lot of the other reviews looks of discussion re the interactive aspect and the head sets. Reinforces that there should be a lot more to the Red Cross story than what is shown

“New version of the museum is enjoyable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

My second visit and I was surprised by the new concept. It's very high tech, different from my last visit in 2009. VERY INTERESTING and I consider this as one of the best museum experience because we get to interact with the pieces set up in the museum. Got a free tour guide during the visit which was super nice and informative!
