“Excellent museum for mechanic watch lovers”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

It is 4 floor museum, which is primary dedicated to Patel Philippe history and watches, but not only.
You can view lots of awesome watches from past centuries and watch how some mechanisms are working in complication models.
It is great place to view the art of watch-masters.
Want to visit it again!

“Very interesting”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

I wasn't going to go to the museum but then I realized my Swiss Pass covered it since it is a museum. It was well worth it. The works of art were very impressive. It was a lot more than just beautiful watches. I spent about an hour in the museum.

“VERY COOL!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

It was so worth the visit! So many different kind of watches and it was overwhelming. BUt the work was beautiful. IT is recommended to start the museum from top floor and then going down each floor.

Only thing is no cameras.... which i wish was not the case because I would love some pictures of the experience but I definitely understand why they would implement that rule. THey want to protect their watches from being replicated and also from flash lights.
