I would agree with similar comments that it’s not entirely clear what the point of this “museum” is. My wife and I (expats in Switzerland) are trying to learn more about the Swiss watch industry. Some museums, like the phenomenal Patek Philippe Museum in Geneva,...More

This very well presented museum is specific to IWC watches. It is not a general museum of timepieces. It would be of interest to someone wanting to buy an IWC watch or who has an IWC watch. It is a bit surprising that they charge...More

Even there are so many shop selling watches at swiss, you cannot find too much IWC watches at all. I think this is right place you must visit for IWC lover.

The museum is very well done, it gives a very good history of IWC watches and displays many fine examples of these watches. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this museum. The museum is not very large and is more suited to adults than children.

Disappointing experience started with a showing of a video in the small IWC theater in the museum. I was expecting something about the history of IWC, or a video showing the watches being built. But instead we got a commercial for their pilot watches. Since...More
