“Incredible Interactive Experience”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

This museum has been put together so well. Its interactivity means that you have an intensely personal experience and anything that you want to focus on comes with a very knowledgable and interesting commentary that really adds to the experience. At times the stories told and the exhibits seen are moving and harrowing but it is done in a way that is sensitive and overall it is well worth a thorough visit. The way that the museum is laid out means that although you may be aware that other people are there, at times you feel completely alone and absorbed in the exhibits. It was just fantastic and I've learnt so much and gained a whole new respect for the organisation and their volunteers.

“Worth the visit.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Exploring Geneva, my husband and I were drawn to the Red Cross/Red Crescent Museum, and we're very glad we went. We took a guided tour first, then walked through the museum on our own, taking time to listen to each of the testimonies. We learned a lot about the history of the Red Cross and were surprised to find out just how helpful the Red Cross is in so many situations, beyond just natural disasters.

This is definitely a must-see when visiting Geneva.

“Interesting museum.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

I was reluctant to go to this museum. However, I enjoyed it and learned quite a bit regarding the work that is performed worldwide by the Red Cross and the Red Crescent. I recommend this museum as a side trip when in Geneva.

“Powerful message and excellent service”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The museum is incredibly well done - the interactive nature of it makes it so easy to enjoy! The individual testimonies were powerful and I liked the fact that the Red Cross wasn't presented as a perfect organisation. The service I received was exceptional - one of the receptionists lent me his personal Geneva parking disc so that I wouldn't get fine!
