PRO: Wonderful museum of you're interested in time pieces. There is a timeline presented in English. CON: Most pieces do not have English descriptions. Recommendation:. Book a tour guide. It will most likely make a better visit.

The museum shows all watches made Patek Phillip from the day this brand came to life up to recent periods. The auditorium inside the museum tells the full story of Patek Philip beginnings, and how the brand managed to come to existence. This is an ex Ellen's place for clocks' addicts like me. Unfortunately, they do not allow photography, and... More

We were not really prepared for the scale of this museum! It is so full of beautiful watches and instruments, and their history, almost too much of it all! Definately worth a visit. Do take time to watch the films and screens telling the history of the Patek Philippe brand, and about the watch technology. These are all marvels of... More

There are 3 floors and a ground floor. At the ground floors there are some mechanisms, 1 and 2 are a large collection of watches (thousands) and 4th is... More

It was quite a hard work to find the museum! We took the bus, got lost and then took the tram - and finally reached plainpalais! If you are not taking taxi, take the tram to plainpalais. Get off, cross the open space, the museum is in a street just opposite. Not hard to find once you reach there. They... More

This is truly a watch-lover's dlight. The museum has four floors, all devoted to watch-making and enamel collections. It is housed in a restored art deco building. Some collections date back to 500 years. There are dials with intricate enamel paintings. There are gem-encrusted wrist watches, music boxes and watches shaped like guns, musical instruments, knives and butterflies.

You'll not see something like it, you don't need a translator, cause they offered more pricy ticket with translator, you will not need it, the most amazing imaginable collection of watches you will ever see, true art and beauty
