The watches were very beautiful, it was interesting to find out more about the watchmaking history of Geneva and especially about Patel Philippe. It didn't take very long to visit the museum but it was good!

Take your time to enjoy the vast collection of contemporary, vintage and antique clocks and watches, most are Patek Philippe.

Small museum with a good collection of historical time pieces. A short stroll from the old town or just 2-3 tram stops away. Not a bad way to spend 1-2 hours on a rainy afternoon. Unfortunately, not allowed to take photos and only open in the pm.

If you stuck in Geneva and you have nothing to do, it is definetly worth time spending to visit this place! Only €10.

Beautifully hand-crafted jewels throughout history. They mention some kings and queens, but overall not a lot of history (other than the branding). Do not wait for the session to watch the video: it's a very old movie that is not very informative regarding watch-making, quite useless.

A very interesting view into one of the most revered watch houses in the world. Excellent exhibit of timepieces and good tours and explanations throughout. Definitely worth a visit, particularly to appreciate part of the culture of Geneva.

Even if you are not into watches/watchmaking, this fabulous little museum teaches you about the history and art of watchmaking through the years. We spent an enjoyable hour perusing the displays and talking to very knowledgeable staff. Great location near the river makes it easy to get to by public transportation.

Check the time it is open!!!!! It did not open until 1400! At the start of the visit I told my eldest brother I had no interest in a watch museum! Did I change my mind?! The top floor is a collection of exquisite art in the form of time pieces. Such perfection in art and precise engineering from the... More

The most amazing place for someone who loves watches. Thousands of watches going back hundreds of years. For a tourist, the location seems to be in the middle of nowhere.

I went on 2 separate occasions and very happy that I did. The guided tour in English is well narrated and at a good pace. The tour is about 90 minutes and the group sizes just right. The tour gravitates around watches of course, but it is a journey through time and gives us a look into the fine technological... More
