  • this was one of my most liked museums in Geneva. It is absolutely amazing, there are like 6 levels or something in the museum, the top floor is about dinosaurs and the other floors are about sea life,...  more »
  • Different approaches, to teach natural history here are superimposed in this museum. Below a set according to the natural system. Badly preserved specimens, label only in Latin and French, no support by electronic media virtually any information depth could convey. Dinosaur exhibition a Act of self-congratulation of the Finder. By Diplodocus' way of life, we learn the details of the excavation see virtually nothing but. Here, funds must be invested in order to make a more modern House, is beautiful, however, that families and children of the House visited countless!

  • 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!
