  • This is a great museum. Well worth a visit if you're coming to Geneva, even for just one day. Entry is adult 15 Franks and if you're under 22 it's reduced to 7 Franks. Included in either price is an audio guide which for the most part is automatic around the museum - it's only the odd display that you need to type the number in for it. The receptionists have great English and even allowed me to borrow a 1 Frank coin for the lockers as I didn't have one (you can't take bags in). It took around 2 hours to go around and was incredibly moving. Definitely recommended!
  • International Museum of the Red Cross was truly spectacular. It’s one of a kind. The receptionists warmly welcomed us. Then we had a good lunch inside. Afterwards we proceeded into the exhibitions while wearing a self automated audio guide with very cool headphones that don’t touch your ears. We had to press the number for some of the exhibitions, but it often turned on automatically. Audio guide and interactive videos presented the history of the Red Cross as well as life changing stories of real people helped by the Red Cross. It moved me. It was inspiring. It is one of the greatest museums I have ever encountered.
