Musee D'Art Et D'Histoire reviews
This is a nice art gallery that is worth finding out the route to. Be prepared for walking as it is large and over a number of floors. There is a Henry Moore sculpture in the park outside.

Loved it! Definitely would highly recommend. Both the permanent and temporary exhibitions were excellent. Truly one I'll remember forever. And to top it off, it's free! Just donate how much (or little or none) as you want and no judgements from the staff. It's by a park on a hill too so a very nice walk and area around. Definitely a must go for art lovers!
I loved the modern art collection at this museum. Some beautiful Monet pieces and many local/Swiss artists as well, capturing some of Geneva’s most scenic views. Stunning! They have temporary exhibitions and a large archeological floor too. The fact that the building itself is gorgeous doesn’t hurt. Highly recommend a visit here.
