Geneva Museum of Art and History (Musée d'Art et d'Histoire de Genève)

Free admission

Regularly dubbed the best cultural attraction in Switzerland, the Geneva Museum of Art and History (Musée d'Art et d'Histoire de Genève) is home to over 650,000 works of art and artifacts spread over five massive floors. The building itself is a splendor in its own right, a gem of Neo Classical architecture flanked by soaring Grecian columns, a series of allegorical sculptures representing various arts, like drawing, painting, and architecture, as well as a top frieze depicting the names of illustrious local artists. The museum’s diverse collections found inside, which have continuously been enriched since it first opened under the name Musée des beaux-arts in 1826, are a testament to applied arts and beaux-arts, as well as archaeology – painting-wise, some of the sought-after headliners include Rembrandt, Modigliani, Cézanne, and Rodin. In addition to all that, MAH also hosts a dozen temporary exhibits throughout the year, ranging anywhere between Picasso to Akhenaton.
