Discover over five centuries of watchmaking history at Patek Philippe Museum, which houses a large collection of fine timepieces and related mechanisms created from the 16th century up to the present day. Founded by one of Switzerland's leading watch manufacturers, the museum devotes a great deal of attention to the brand's own luxury products, with a special focus on modern precision pieces and lavish 19th-century pocket watches. The antique collection looks beyond the brand's best products and traces the evolution of timekeeping with displays of the finest examples of Swiss-made watches, musical automata, and portrait miniatures painted on enamel.

  • Great Museum with an incredible collection of antique watches. There are some fantastic pieces. There is also a room devoted solely to the brand. Really interesting. Please allow at least 2 hours for the visit. Unfortunately, forbidden pictures.

  • Many unique pieces full of history and beautiful presentation, ideal one rainy afternoon. I recommend children in infancy. In case of breakage that might be very expensive...

  • I went there with the expectation to learn a little about the manufacturing of watches. Instead I got only to see a about 200 kinds of watches which are nearly identical and no details at all beside its date and material. There were indeed some beautiful ones, but after you see almost the same clock the 12th time, you really get feed up quickly. If I wanted to go see juwelry and watches, then I could habe gone to a shopping mal and there, you won't have to pay 10 CHF just for entering in it... Oh and photos are not allowed!
  • 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.
  • pretty much a hidden gem. a must visit for all Patek fans. Great history
  • For everybody visiting Switzerland and especially for those watch lovers! A true gem in the heart of Geneva!
  • Extensive watch collection from different eras. Photo taking inside the museum is not allowed. Security was a bit too strict that the personnel hovered over our shoulders to the point of making us feel uncomfortable.
