For all amateurs of primitive art, this is THE place, with always changing exhibitions; not many objects displayed at the time, but the quality is exceptional

This is a good private museum of african arts located in the old town. The collection is small though. Open 7/7 days and entrance fee 8 CHF. MEG Geneva has more to offer and with free entrance.
