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

Review of: HR Giger Museum

Really enjoyed the museum. I was surprised how large it is - it took me about 1 hour to go over all exhibits. Recommended only for adults - has visual stuff that is hard for kids to understand.

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

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

Giger's museum is full of his extraordinary imagination. This is a cool, worthwhile visit if a bit pricey

Review of: HR Giger Museum

Randomly thrown together collection of pictures and paintings. No explanation, no chronology, no background. If you type in "Giger" in Google Images you probably get a similar experience, so save yourself the CHF 12,50.

Review of: HR Giger Museum

Cool museum, not too big. The work is disturbing, but it's nice to see the different techniques he used and where he got his inspiration from. There's close to zero background information available though...

Visiting this place having been a Giger fan for so long was a dream come true. For my friend who knew nothing of Giger is was more of a nightmare. His art is an acquired taste. If you have acquired it visit to see his...More

the best way is to get to Bern, or Geneva! From Bern it will take 1h45min with 2 changes - in Ramont and Bulle. From Geneva it will be a longer trip - 2h30min. It's all up to You! Don't forget to have a drink at Giger's bar... More
