  • Accessed from Paquis across the harbour by water bus M2, the museum is terrific for families. Lots to see and do, and a great collection of exhibits of the world's wildlife and out human place in...  more »
  • An amazing brutalist building stuffed (no pun intended) with examples of formerly living creatures. A very antiquated but informative museum.  more »

  • Such a nice place to visit while in Geneva. It’s free and it’s so organised and has so many things to look at. Everyone should do a visit. You can go there by bus from the city centre. Really handy and it is very quick.
  • It was my second time here. It’s a good (free) place to go. The exhibits were fun and interesting even if you couldn’t read everything! I would definitely recommend this for any age!
