Incredible museum with countless pieces from the 1500's to 1990's. True objects of art in every possible size and shape. The exhibit takes three floors and is impossible to take in one visit but you will get a very good idea in less than 2 hours.

We went to this place considering that it was recommended by our travel book. At first the opening hours are very strange, it's opening at 2 pm. We thought the visit would explain how the watches are made and how it has improved over the years. However, in fact the whole museum is mainly a series of different watches from... More

The museum is dedicated to Swiss watchmaking The museum is located near the plainpalais place. Its entrance is free with the Geneva pass. The museum contains quite some masterpieces that are worth the visit. One interesting part is the explanation of the various mechanism you can find inside a watch.

Switzerland is synonymous to the fine making of watches, and there's nothing more representative than Patek Philippe Museum.. A must-visit!

The Patek Phillipe Museum is huge. Its a three story building full of clocks and watches dating back to the 17-18th century. I'm not a huge fan of watches, but I thought it would be interesting to visit. It was interesting, at least the first 30 minutes. But After one hour and only seeing half of the museum, I started...

We thought we would take advantage of the Geneva 0ass and paid a short visit to this museum. It is a very impressive place, a shrine to master artists and craftsmen who created the beautiful objects on display. I was impressed by the extent of the collection and how well it was displayed. Unfortunately we had to watch our time,... More

Big and impressive collection of watches. Took my family in-law to visit and they were quite impressed even though none of us is particulary into watches. We really enjoyed the video showing watch making on the top floor. Would recommend on a rainy day as a nice family activity
