Some people have classed this as a museum but I think it really is an art gallery of assorted sculptural objects rather than paintings. The works of art on display are truly amazing especially the moving canvases. Prices range from about CHF300 to thousands!! The owner was very pleasant and only too happy to show me his MB&F watch which I found out was worth about £68,000 - very nice! Well worth a visit and it’s free as it’s more of a gallery/shop. Will take about 10-20 mins to wander round the store - it’s only small. Enjoy!

A friend who is obsessed with watches told us about this place - wouldn't have known about it otherwise - and since we were already in the Old Town we decided to stop in. It's a small gallery (free) with truly incredible pieces of art/machinery. The man working there took time to explain each item to us and it was all just very cool. Would definitely recommend.

Went on a watch based holiday to Geneva and read the reviews about this place so decided we had to pay it a visit.

It was quiet in Geneva when we visited and we were the only people I the gallery. The attendant was fantastic - really friendly and took the time to talk us through all the pieces, including the concept and mechanics of each.

MB&F watches are incredible but it was the Chronomeans clock that left us speechless. Some wonderful and innovative designs!

The spectacular mechanics and wonderful treatment we received made us feel really special and I would highly recommend anyone with an interest in watches/clocks/machinery to pay the gallery a visit if in Geneva.

Probably one of the most unique experiences in Geneva (or any other city by the way).
The M.A.D. Gallery curates artists specialized in mechanical or kinetic art - and mix them with MB&F horlogical machines. Objects and creators never heard of, and pieces which are all truly amazing. Hervé, the manager, will spend as much time as necessary to take you round and explain each artist and piece - never once departing from his incredible big smile and enthusiasm.
They introduce a new artist nearly every six to eight weeks so it is always worth passing by.
A must see and experience

As a very ugly person. I often look for fun things to take the attention away from my grotesque appearance. These watches are just what the doctor ordered, after buying my first MB&f (HM5) nobody in Mykonos even noticed i was bald. Then i purchased an HM2 and HM7 and i don’t even need to trim my beard anymore. People don’t even notice my homeless looks with the tourb spinning on my wrist. Recently i grabbed the MAD 1 piece and it’s a perfect travel watch, i just wish it came out 20 years ago when people had spinners on their car. (Insert rap song with spinner reference) Also Thibault was wonderful to deal with when picking out random and wild time pieces. Would love to visit again as it’s like a toy store for mechanically inclined adults.

We both really enjoyed this gallery and can highly recommend. All of the items are so exquisitely made with such beauty and precision. The gallery representative had a clear understanding of how each piece had been made and was able to explain that in a simple way. Very informative and truly inspiring!

Friendly and unique. This is a small gallery that has blossomed from watch crafting into a time and motion gallery. Such interesting pieces, some you cannot guess how they move! The gallery owner is very supportive of those just wishing to browse and enjoy the novelty.

The gallery is in the old part of town, where there are beautiful shops to explore, nice restaurants, Museum Maur and the Russian Church...an afternoon well spent in the city!
