I found my visit to this museum very odd and I'm still not quite sure what to make of it. I was expecting to learn about the history of the Red Cross and then perhaps get an understanding of some of their current humanitarian work....More

Nice place to visit if you have some time available in Geneve. Very close to United Nations Buiding (walk distance). You can do a tour inside the building to see about Red Cross history over the years and around the world.

This museum is very well thought out with many different types of exhibit explaining the history of the Red Cross and the work it does around the world. Price includes a great audio guide too. Well recommended.

We stopped in here while waiting for our tour at the UN across the street. Very glad we did. Interesting testimonials on display. Very real.

The museum is very well organized and easy to navigate. It breaks down the visit among the Red Cross/Crescent missions without being overbearing. My son instinctively complains about any museum, but this one kept him engaged.

An absolutely wonderful display for children over 12. I would highly recommend a visit along side a visit to the Broken Chair and the UN building. All ties together nicely, and gives a good overarching understanding of war time efforts that maintain a balance in...More
