The museum is cutting edge with interactive holograms of Red C/C reached peoples and their journeys. Three key areas are highlighted: restoring family links, defending human dignity, reducing natural risks- all as permanent exhibits. We were on bikes and in search of of the UNHCR building in the area. Especially a good option if the UN entrance line is too... More

This is an interesting museum with a visit that includes 3 different themes The tracing service was the most interesting of the various rooms I think it would be a more interesting museum if they showed videos of actual world events that have benefited from the Red Cross.example war situations, floods,etc Also there should be mention of where the Red...

The red cross museum is well worth the time and the money. A very different kind of museum, with lots of interactive exhibits that makes you think. Very powerful and also emotional. You come out of there wanting to join the red cross!

Beautiful modern structure not far from other International Organizations, it is worth a visit where you can learn more about activities of Red Cross.

Very impressive building, but what a shame that the price of this was beyond what I was prepared to pay to visit a museum with 2 children in tow. However the stone figurines of bound and blindfolded POW's at the entrance was worthy of a good selfie. If they charged a lower price, many more would pay and I'm sure... More

When there are so many options, this was one we thought was not worth the entrance fee. Better options at a fairer entrance fee
