Though it is expensive to get in especially if you are from the UK and used to some free museums, it proved to be good value for money. The audio guides are excellent and help to immerse you in the museum. There are many interesting...More

The International Red Cross museum was easily accessible by either walking (15 minutes) or taxi (5-10 minutes) from the Geneva airport. After purchasing your ticket, they supply you with an audio guide that narrates the museum while you walk through. It was expertly done and...More

Interesting museum. It was nice to learn about the red cross and how much work they do helping people all around the world. It was interesting to learn how long the red cross has been around. It is a very good cause.

This unique museum is the only one in the world devoted to the Red Cross and the Red Crescent which justly deserves its place in Geneva – not least because the Red Cross was founded by a Genevan, Henry Dunant, who created the international movement...More

The museum is well designed. The holograms are really cool! My friends and I enjoyed the game where you save the islanders from the storm. Not an essential stop in Geneva

Three fixed displays which are interactive with the audio device. Very well presented and informative and thought provoking. Set aside a couple of hours.

Though there is quite a high fee to enter, the museum does accept the International ICOM guide. With entry, you get a very good audio guide. My highlight was the interactive experience on hurricane prevention measures and the 'witnesses' which you can hear from.

It’s the second time I visit the museum and I still enjoyed the visit. The museum has three fixed exhibitions and one that changes every few months. The audio guide is very helpful and easy to use. Allow plenty of time to enjoy your visit...More
