  • Really very beautiful and interesting Museum for children and the family. Do not forget to visit the Janus turtle 2 heads.

  • The Geneva natural history museum is a large Museum that spans multiple floors. There are reconstructed the various habitats of the Earth with the species that live there and is very limited. It's also nice space dedicated to ancient animals, I loved the part about dinosaurs, although small. The entrance to the Museum is free and there is a shop, a snack bar and a floor dedicated to learning for children. A perfect Museum to take us kids.

  • Nice place with perfect expositions. Children should be happy visiting this place. Necative-cafe... it's ok, but it can be much better at place like this.
  • Preserved animals from around the world are exhibited in this museum. There is no ticket fee to enter the museum. It is good place to bring your kids to learn many kinds of animals.
  • Entrance free. Very good experience. Perfect to go at with kids.
  • *** Beware the museum is in french only! *** At first I was very sceptical. I thought that it might be targeted to a younger audience and just went there because a friend of mine was too curious. In the end I was happy I joined! The museum is mostly about animals (which are stuffed). The quality is amazing! In pictures, those animals really look as if they were real. Useful information is provided almost for each animal. The advantage over a zoo is, that the animals are shown very closely which enables the visitor to inspect every little detail of it. The museum is well structured and themed: National animals, exotique land animals, exotique aquatic animals and minerals. I'm not a fan of geology, but in this museum, even the minerals part was interesting. Worth a try!
