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

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.

The museum is easy to get to and you will be able to see the UN building at the same time. The audio guide technology is very good with many of the guides startling automatically. There were three main exhibitions and we visited all three....More
