  • very fun can get to this museum because I learn a lot about the International Red Cross and some of the important facts of the crimes of humanity and how the Red Cross helps to archive the crime victims.

  • We stopped in here while waiting for our tour at the UN across the street. Very glad we did. Interesting testimonials on display. Very real.  more »
  • As Geneve is a city with relatively few options, this museum is very interesting. It is worth to get to know the work of the Red Cross.

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.
