  • Museum dedicated to watchmaking throughout the centuries. Sure that no one can enter the Museum with backpacks and cameras so we have to leave all in locked cabinets (any currency deposit). lovely Museum that spans several floors with hundreds and thousands of watches, from ancient to modern, many of whom made on request of important Dukes and Princes of Europe. possibility of guided tour on Saturday afternoons (in French or English).

  • If you're a watch lover, not only is Geneva the place to be, but this museum is amazing! The have several floors going through the history and the evolution of their watches. I really enjoyed it. It really makes you appreciate the work that goes into a mechanical watch. I also really loved seeing the elaborate watch designs as well. I was able to catch the museum on this weekend where all the museums were free, so that was a bonus! It was in May.
  • Lovely and costly collection. Well worth the additional cost to join the group tour, English is Saturdays at 2:30pm and lasts over an hour.
  • Lots and lots of intricate pocket watches but very little about their mechanisms or the manufacture. More like a jewellery museum with lots of shiny objects than a watchmaking museum. Disappointing.
  • Great collection, too expensive to get in there, not mentioning the locker costs additional CHF5.
  • Amazing collection. I consider it an obligatory parade when visiting Geneve.
