  • Being an admirer of his works and films, I loved the Museum. But however, I found that it was expensive for the little things to do. In 30 minutes it is curly. And hospitality leaves to be desired. Do once but not twice.

  • I wanted to go to the Giger Museum since a long time now. Gruyeres is a very nice swiss village and the museum was above my expectations. You can see some really nice and exclusive Giger pieces and also his private art collections! Totally worth it!
  • I was shaking with enthusiasm while in the museum. A place to visit before you die if you are a fan. My man Giger...
  • Great museum! Big collection of items from Giger, consisting of statues, paintings and drawings. Of course there are lots of things from Alien as well. Tip: If you're a fan of the band KoRn, one of only three casts of the singers mic stand is also in this museum.
  • If you enjoyed the Alien movies (a least the first one) you will love this museum which is based on the work of H.R. Giger the man behind the Alien creature. This is a great museum to visit devoted entirely to the artist.
  • The creator of alien characters houses all his creation in this museum. You will not miss it as it is close to the entrance of the castle of Gruyère.
