“Beautiful Place”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

I liked very much the parc and museum. You breathe fresh air and enjoy the nice place. Liked the architecture of the building and beautiful "voute". Great ceramic collections and traditional rooms. Free entrance except for private expositions.

“Ceramics”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

This is is housed in a beautiful building. On entry to the museum, the sheer scale of it is breathtaking, especially the marble posts that flank the upper level. Each post has been carved differently, with a 'sister' post nearby. The variety and layout of the ceramics is phenomenal. There is something to suit all tastes. There was an exhibition on Islamic pottery for €8 with some written English to describe the pieces. The cafe is on the second floor, all staff were friendly and helpful even with my basic French speaking skills. I would definitely go there again. Easy to navigate from Geneva Cornivan, hop on an urban bus to Nations, (number 15) get off at the last stop. Once you see a massive broken chair sculpture opposite the United Nations building cross the road and walk up the hill, garden and museum on the right.

“Porcelain”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

If you are interested in porcelain, you should visit this museum. It has displays to explain the different techniques and glazes as well as comparing similar porcelain and pottery from different countries.
