“Well worth visiting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

Near the tram stop. Excellent exhibits and the museum was empty of visitors when we visited. Very peaceful and informative, with info in Latin, French and English. Well worth a visit. Good clean facilities too.

“Great for a Sunday activity!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

This museum holds a very nice collection. Great geology collection as it focused on the area, but ventured out to other places around the world. The other collections also mostly focus on the surrounding areas, expect the zoology exhibit. I think if you have kids this would be a great place to take them as there are a lot of things to see, but also has interesting factoids for adults as well. Plus it was FREE!

“Great Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

Amazing museum, tons of interesting factoids to be learnt by going!!! The only thing that took away from it was the incredibly basic cafeteria. Other than that, its a great place to go, especially with children. I briefly visited with my father, and had a wonderful time!

“Great for geology of Geneva and surrounding area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013 via mobile

This large museum had impressive detail on everything you could ever want to know about the geology of the area, ranging from mineralogy to hydrology. Seemed not so strong on many aspects of worldwide zoology and had many aging specimens in need of restoration. Ornithology was a strength, including very impressive exhibits on the diversity of nests and eggs. The museum is located in a large and relatively modern building and was free of charge.

“Actually pretty cool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

Went here for the little one who promptly fell asleep so wifey an I checked it out. Pretty cool place made all the cooler by the fact it is a free thing in a damn expensive city. Give the crappy cafeteria a miss though - recommend especially for kids
