The Museum of Art and History in Geneva is located in a beautiful old building with a magnificent feel. It is the largest art museum in Geneva, covering ancient and modern art. You can also visit for free! The fine art collection is its highlight, with wonderful Renaissance and modern paintings (including some from painting giants like Rembrandt). Unfortunately, many item descriptions are in French, but you can take an audio tour in English for only 5 Swiss francs. The only reason I infer a star is that its ancient collection is so disappointing that it is not considered part of the museum. The Egyptian collection is small, with many pottery fragments or incomplete objects, and its main highlight is a rather small statue of Ramses II. The Greco-Roman collection is larger, but there are not many objects of interest. I think this museum might be better if it only focuses on painting. Although it is a good thing to be able to provide visitors with a view of antiquities, it is disappointing that the scope of antiquities is limited, which has a slight impact on the overall experience. But the paintings are very good, and the service at the reception is also very warm, which is rare in Geneva.
