From the viewpoint of someone interested purely in history I found first 3/4 of it interesting, especially the temporary exhibition on Gutenberg printing press. But the modern period not so much, it felt more like "come join our faith". But maybe that was just me....More

You need some time as it is surprisingly large. There are experiences, such as music and movies as well as lots of information to read.

We had so much to see in Geneva in such a short space and so I didn't get a long as I would of liked here. I managed to make it round all of it before it closed and it was a great museum, I...More
