You need to take at least 1.5 hours time to stroll through this museum .. its not just about watchmaking, but about the art of which showing the time is just a technical part. Don't miss the movie!

Passed a lovely afternoon here with my friends kids. There's some good interactive bits and lots of explainations ( so kids really understand it) it's interesting to see the tools used over the ages and the styles of watches over time

I'd recommend a visit especially if you like elegant watches. Luxuriously designed and well laid out museum containing priceless historical watches made for and owned by royalty and other historical personages. I'd give it 5 stars but it loses a point for the limited English signs and the ban on photography. Another suggestion would be to have a souvenir shop.... More

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.
