Barbier-Mueller Museum (Musée Barbier-Mueller)

One of the key attractions of Geneva’s Old Town, the Barbier-Mueller Museum holds the world’s largest collection of non-Western art and artifacts. The core of the permanent collection comprises works from Oceania, Africa and indigenous artisans of the Americas, supplemented by an important collection of antiquities from Greece, Italy and other centers of the ancient world.

Forget what you know about dusty ethnological displays in natural history museums; here the outstanding quality of the exhibits is matched by thoughtful presentation, with regular exhibitions highlighting various aspects of the collection. From Malian pottery to pre-Columbian jade jewelry, from Roman statuary to Papuan masks, the Barbier-Mueller Museum is the result of almost a century’s worth of passionate collecting and world-class research.

Practical Info

The museum is located a stone’s throw from both the Cathédrale Saint-Pierre and Hôtel de Ville in Geneva’s picturesque Old Town. It is served by regular trams from the main Gare de Cornavin train station.
