  • This is one of the best museums in Geneva. The three main exhibitions are hugely educational while also being entertaining and interactive. You can have a headset in your language that guides you around the museum, which I found very useful, although it did sometimes play the wrong recording when moving in the more crowded exhibits (chambers of witnesses). On the whole, the headset worked very well, and the restaurant was good as well. The temporary exhibition was great as well, although I must say, regarding the whole museum, it can be useful to have some background knowledge before you go in, and it is best if you understand the topics inside, so I think that it is best if you are over 13.
  • Probably one of the best museums in Geneva. Very educational and unexpectedly interactive. Not a demanding one as well, you’ll need no more than two hours for a detailed visit. Headsets are automatically playing when you enter the room which is a nice quirk, with additional explanation on the way. It’s educational, but not politically charged which I liked, however some issues could have been given a bit more space
