I was very impressed by this museum. It is not as big and you can visit it in one or two hours. I was very happy to see references to the Colombian peace process. The testimonies are moving and help you remember the challenges we...More

It’s a nicely curated and interactive walk along the International Red Cross work around the time and world. You can really get into the institutions principles and some of the people’s experiences. It is beautiful, moving and educational. I would definitely recommend it!

It was a soul searching experience when I saw all the pictures of the refugees in the temporary display section. Well worth the admission.

The technology kept breaking down with no-one on floor meant you need to go to reception. The exhibits were somewhat limited based on projection and voice-over. Museum doesn't do free 1st Sundays like others - would recommend giving this one a miss

Was really excited to go and view the museum. Well it’s not free like all of the other museums in Geneva the first Sunday of the month. My partners head phones died half way through. It’s not worth the 15chf the charge. Rather go and...More

Not sure how I feel about this museum. It definitely told a lot of sad stories, but I expected more about the Red Cross history and its missions. 15 CHF is expensive, but goes to a good cause. You get a locker and audio device...More

Due to limited time I was able to see only two of the exhibitions in detail. The museum has tried to personalise the experience by presenting oral histories from the affected person itself. I found this a very good way to develop empathy in the...More
