The Patek Philippe Museum exhibits thousands of prestigious watches and clocks made during last 500 years. Also short film about Mr Patek and Mr Philippe showing how they got together and started out in watchmaking. Films of them travelling all over the world few hundred years ago. Some very old films. All very interesting. We visited Museum during our stay... More

I love watches, so I was thrilled to go to this place. However when I arrived it was a little underwhelming. I think the admission was a little steep for what was inside. I would liked to have seen a few more of their modern timepieces, but the classic (mostly pocket) watches were quite beautiful. Since there isn't a whole... More

Still something worthwhile to do in Geneva. But mostly pocket watches. They should include some of their contemporary watches or the whole product range.

What a wonderful beautiful museum, plan at least 2 hrs, if you can arrange a private tour, so much to see... Worth coming to Geneva just to go to the museum... you do not have to be a watch enthusiast to appreciate the craftmenship and artistry on display... A must visit attraction.....

Was really looking forward to visiting this museum. It seems like it's in a seedy part of town but I'm not sure as I don't really know Geneva. We got there at opening. There is a fee. You have to put your bag, any bag, in a locker in the basement. It is five CHF but you also get it... More

This museum is great if you love watches, fashion, history and technology, because the art of make watches is really impressive, and you can see all its evolution. The structure is also excellent, as all swiss museums.

Very beautiful place. I love watches and Patek Philippe is the best for me. All inside of the Museum is beautiful. If you never was there, you must see it. The best brand is Patek Philippe.

My son had told me that this is a fabulous and lovely museum. It is true. The layout is quite remarkable. One just does not want to leave. History oozes out of each exhibit.

Philippe Patek museum it is more then heaven for watch lovers and connoisseurs! The collection dates from 1500 until present days. It was mind blowing to see the unique pieces of art made back in 16th century with such a precision and delicacy! How in the whole world could they be so skilful to combine beauty and great math calculation... More

I didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. It is the history of watchmaking. The exhibits, of which there are hundreds, are stunning.
