  • The Musee d'ethnographie de Geneve is an interesting Museum, filled with objects, pictures and videos but I personally didn't like the location and the conformity of the Museum. MGE is consists of two floors, the first is appalled at the bar and a gift shop. The second one is divided between the permanent exhibition and the temporary one. I appreciated the vastness of objects but the cases and display cabinets are too many, all put in the same large room. After a while you're MEG, you're tired of walking in one big room and being catapulted in front of objects from various countries in a matter of seconds. There is no real separation between the various exhibits and sometimes I found myself confused at seeing of Chinese shoes and after one meter, to find myself facing a tribal mask. Personally, I consider the MEG a nice Museum but should be rethought in the show. The first Sunday of the month, MEG is free for everyone.

  • The new museum is very classy and the temporary exhibit on the Amazon is very good. We loved the interactive iPad given to you on entering, you can listen to various sections of the exhibition see mor...  more »
  • This renovated Museum has a very interesting and modern architectural style. The exhibits are very well organized by historical periods and continents. The local is medium size, allowing you to explore the entire Museum in one or two hours according to the time available. Also there are thematic exhibitions, for which you have to pay an entry. The Museum is suitable for children. On the top floor there is a room with computers where you can choose and listen to thousands of songs. It is worth the visit.

  • A must see in Geneva! Very god, new museum with FREE outstanding permanent exhibitions of ethnography but also 2 to 3 temporary exhibitions per yeaar (charged but FREE every first Sunday of the month). All well displayed. Closed on Mondays. Do not miss this fantastic museum when in Geneva!
  • Small museum, but great approach to curating, nice collection, nice architecture.
  • A great collection of artefacts from all over the world. Fascinating information also presented in English and it's even free entry.
  • Very beautiful museum with a honorable atmosphere
  • I'm very surprised to see a notice with a single star. The Museum had to be closed that day here and even in this case, the opinion remains surprising. This is a must in the constellation of Geneva museums. See and see again absolutely.
