With some 80,000 items from Africa, America, Asia, the Pacific and Europe, the Geneva Museum of Ethnography offers a fascinating insight into historic cultures from around the world and is said to be the second largest collection in Switzerland.

From African weapons and sculptures to pre-Columbian artefacts, Japanese samurai weaponry to historic musical instruments, the Geneva Museum of Ethnography offers an incredibly diverse number of things to see.

Please note, there is more than one branch of the Geneva Museum of Ethnography. The one in Boulevard Carl-Vogt is currently closed for renovations until 2014, while the one in Conches remains open.
