  • A well-crafted muséum, but also quite small. Very accessible in all languages. It focuses on a variety of red cross work, but especially prisoners of war and refugee services. Lots of awesome history.
  • You will go through different emotions, that will hit you with great power. It's very well made. A must see. Humanity is capable of great achievements but there are too many horrors, still, in this world.
  • I always have a wonderful visit to the ICRC museum. The permanent exhibit provides a richer understanding of such an important movement and the temporary exhibits are always done incredibly well!
  • Incredible exhibition with some truly inspiring art and information. The work that this organization does needs to be supported and funded. The audio guides worked fantastically and were of some of the better quality I've experienced. The staff wasn't the most welcoming but that's all right, just make sure you have you're tickets out and ready to show. Personally it would've been better to know more about how the organization functions and how different parts of it get funded, so if you're looking for that it's better to just read about it. But the impressions I got were very emotionally charged and a highlight of Geneva. It is worth a visit.
  • The best museum that I have visited ever! Everything is really great, since the beginning till the end. Super modern and the history that this museum has is amazing. I would pay 3x more what I payed to enter. Amazing, amazing!
