  • A great Museum with a stunning architecture inside. It has a lot to offer, primarily in terms of the red cross history. There are audio guidelines in multiple languages and interactive displays all over the museum. The whole museum is quite up to date in terms of technology. Worth a short visit if you are in Geneva even for a single day. Across the museum, you’ll find the ceramics museum which is also quite cool. They also offer student discount and are free if you have the Swiss travel pass!
  • Check out the rest of the property if you have time, it's quite nice. English audio guide option available, great exhibits with several interactive elements. I'd say the content of a few of the exhibits is a bit heavy, but very educational. They also have a student discount.
