We spend 1.5 hours looking at all the animals. Very nice but we're a bit disappointed from the lack of English explanations.

If you're a fan of animals and taxidermy, this is a great way to spend an hour - some really good and unusual stuffed animals and there's a nice little gift shop too. We didn't see many interactive elements but there were lots of displays...More

Sometimes I can't be bothered with museums but this one is really great. Our daughter didn't want to leave and begged to go round again. Also the cafe is great. Make sure you find Janus(!)

The museum is realy great and unexpected surprise. Everything is realy well organised and info very accesible to everybody but especialy to the kids. A small minus would be that everything is listed in french. But on the other hand is free...so enjoy the experience!

This museum is by far one of my favourite places in Geneva. It has an enormous variety of exposed animals, going from the ones you can find in Switzerland, to exotic ones. If you are lucky, you might see the two headed turtle! A must...More

It is actually quite a good little Museum if you are interested by the local fauna; they have examples of just about all the animals living, and some extinct, in the area. And on top of it, it's free! Good for all: family with young,...More
