  • 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.
