Wow - this was easily one of the freakiest museums I've ever been into. I enjoyed is work in the Alien(s) series - that was just the tip of the iceberg! My wife and two daughters (12 and 7) and I enjoyed walking through this...More
I was going to this museum to find out more about HR Giger's life, his art and how he was as a private person. The fee of 12.50 Fr./person is rather high. Unfortunately this location came across as a loose collection of the artist's creative...More
That a museum like this exists in a small 400 year old historic town like Gruyere...well we did not and were very happy to find out it is there...entrance price is about 13 CFH and it took us about half an hour to look at...More
If you're a fan, you don't need a review. Just go and enjoy. If you're not, it might be just over the top and become a little boring after a while. Good that the cashier warns people with smaller children not to enter, but strangely...More
