  • For all amateurs of primitive art, this is THE place, with always changing exhibitions; not many objects displayed at the time, but the quality is exceptional  more »
  • This is a good private museum of african arts located in the old town. The collection is small though. Open 7/7 days and entrance fee 8 CHF. MEG Geneva has more to offer and with free entrance.  more »

  • Focused, concise boutique museum. I can't give a 5th ⭐️ because there were no English descriptions in the gallery and the (free) Wi-Fi didn't extend to the basement to allow web translation. I became a member and look forward to many further galleries when in Genève.
  • One of the best museum on african art on earth, private one
  • A wonderful Museum. Extraordinary art! Visit only one exhibition in this museum completely changed all of my ideas about modern art. Nowhere I have not seen anything like the force of the impact. All items were made like aliens.

Where to stay in Geneva

In the elegant city of Geneva, a little shuteye doesn't come cheap. A number of relatively expensive hotels surround the lakefront, a prime location for visitors here; note that these tend to fill up for conferences and trade shows, so plan accordingly. More budget-minded travelers can look into options closer to the airport, which is a quick 15-minute ride on public transport into the city. While there a very few family-owned guesthouses and hotels, there are a handful of hostels--though these too are priced pretty steep. You can also find more affordable options in the outlying cities of Annemasse and Gaillard.
