  • If you are in Geneva and have an hour or two to spare, the Ariana ceramic museum exhibition is certainly worth a visit. Besides the beautiful pieces on display, the history of ceramics in Europe, and ...  more »
  • Beautiful building housing two floors of ceramics and glass in a variety of styles, cultures, and sizes. Nice place to check out, since it's free, and just down the street from the United Nations.  more »
  • Hidden gem. Beautiful exhibits, what a wonderful building. Ceramics, glass, porcelain pieces. Coffee on terrace on a lovely sunny day. Definately return.  more »

  • Absolutely stunning interior and plenty of pieces spanning multiple cultures (mostly European) and centuries. Highly recommend if you are a huge fan of ceramics or glassware but otherwise, it may be a bit dull. The architecture is gorgeous, and the museum is definitely worth a visit if only to walk around the outside and through the gardens surrounding it.
  • Best and unique swiss museum which fully covers worldwide ceramics. The latter making part of the permanent exhibition is free of charge. Outstanding temporary ones are free every 1st Sunday of the month. Open 11 to 18 except Monday.Don't forget to walk around the park, go to the back of the museum and on the lovely terrasse on the 1st floor.
  • Really expansive museum featuring ceramic pieces from different eras and areas of the world. We were lucky to get in during free entrance day.
  • Fantastic building and the collection!
  • A walk away from the UN and broken chair. Good location with a big park to relax.

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.
