  • This was a great place to take the kids or even just adults! They had three floors with many nice exhibits. The exhibits are of animals that are native to Europe, exotic animals, birds and fish, as well as a dinosaur exhibit, ocean creatures exhibit and a gem and mineral exhibit. There was an elevator for anyone with mobility issues and also a small cafe in the museum that was open for lunch. Best of all, it was free to get into the museum! Definitely recommended if you are in Geneva.
  • Really nice natural history museum, its a bit out of the way of central Geneva but well worth the tram ride or walk. The permanent exhibitions are always very interesting and detailed with a lot of info in both French, English and possibly German (can't really remember). At the moment the dinosaur exhibition is a must see!
  • An amazing place to spend the day alone or with friends and family. The museum recently added some very impressive dinosaurs fossils, and its always fun to meet the museum's live two headed turtle.
  • Wonderful collection of well appointed and contemporary styled displays. The bright coloured backgrounds and effective lighting make this place a joy to visit, even if you can't read the descriptions. Free to visit, worth spending an hour or two. Especially joyous during the weekdays when it's not busy.
  • Wide range of animals and a very nice dinosaur exhibition game. Was sad that the Primates were replicas. Nice evolutionary focus. Unfortunately the place is full of kids running around and screaming, in the morning at least.
