We were suppose to have visited the UN facility but tours were fully booked so we crossed the street and visited the Red Cross Museum.....and oh so very happy we did so! So very interesting and learned many many things about the Red Cross's involvement that I had no idea they did. And so well organized in terms of presentation.

Very tight security, you have to leave everything in lockers. Some amazing history and super exhibitions. So much I never knew about the work of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.

Every aspect of the Red Cross Museum is superbly conceived and executed, aimed to communicate with that deep human level of feeling and imagination in which we all reside.

I was hoping for more.... Staff were friendly and helpful. Entrance to the whole museum is not free, only one small room dedicated to the Red Cross.

The museum has almost no written information and instead relies on automatic audioguides. This was fine most of the time because it would load what I wanted automatically by scanning it, or there would be a number to manually enter, but there were numerous times when there was no manual number to enter and the automatic scan was hard to...
