I love visiting this Cathedral. Unfortunately the reformation museum is now closed for renovation. We love the church, the museum and the reformation wall. Must see in Geneva! more »
This is a very nice museum that will take you back in time before the reformation to the very first settlements in the city. Unfortunately it is easy to miss. The entrance is at the right side of St. Pierre's cathedral. The ticket is 8 francs. I spend there 1 1/2 hours. This museums will make you experience archeological work at first hand. Recommended!
