We visited Switzerland’s largest natural history exhibition and took a journey through the evolution of mankind. Amazing experience for the little ones and it's free for the family !

Today we decided to head into Geneva to visit the Natural History Museum. We have visited before but last time we chose a rainy Sunday when the museum was very busy so we wanted to go again to get a better look.


We parked in Villereuse car park and from there it’s a short walk to the museum which is free to enter.


We started on the 3rd floor and visited the temporary ant exhibition which I believe is finishing today before exploring the rest which guides you through the archeological, paleontological, zoological and osteological history of mankind.

The museum is well laid out and easy to navigate with a pushchair and little people who want to run in all directions like Alba. The children really enjoyed the large displays which make the exhibits really easy for them to see so we were excited to spot animals, birds, bones, glittering minerals and sea life on our way round.

There are plenty of panels to read, buttons to press, various interactive screens, short films and games to make it easy to learn as you walk around.

It’s a really great place to spark the curiosity of children and we were really happy that Jude asked questions as we went about fossils, evolution and dinosaur extinction, and Alba was happy to delight us with her large and alarmingly loud repertoire of animal noises as we went.

There is a nice cafe, a cloakroom and plenty of toilets so it’s a good place to spend a few hours whether it’s a rainy day or not.
