  • Although not huge however decent size, it's quality is worth the time.
  • Better go to the Museum of Ethnography of Geneva (MEG) which is new, big and FREE! It also has long opening hours. But forget this Foundation Baur which is small, posh and disappointing.. Entrance fee 10 CHF is expensive for the very little they show. And opening hours very reduced : only from 14 to 18:00. My god, this Baur Foundation is a wreck!! Forget it!
  • Amazing collection of art & historical .
  • Their thematic temporary exhibitions are always fascinating, but for anyone interested in ancient Chinese jades and ceramics their permanent collection is a must see. Also very interesting is their collection of tsuba, netsuke and other traditional Japanese apparel.
  • Very cute and cosy Museum with its own superb collection. Chinese porcelain vases are the first samples of the absolute in form of masterpieces of world ceramic art. And small items from Japan forever will win your heart. In this small Museum hosts exhibitions of unspeakable beauty and generosity. Such things can only be seen in gold funds of the Imperial and Royal gatherings. Beyond praise!

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.
