This was an extremely well laid out archeological museum. It was even better than I expected. The history that is presented in such an easy to digest formate -- with models and CGI graphics, all against the "living" unearthed exhibits of excavated relics -- is...More

Amazing work to exhume the many centuries of history beneath the cathedral. Well documented, nicely displayed and very informative audio tour make for a good hour or two being transported into Geneva's past. Possibly a little claustrophobic for anyone with an issue of enclosed spaces.

It is a very large area that you can spend hours or 30 minutes exploring. It goes under the Cathedrale with an audio tour and well marked signage of what you are looking at. Amazing work.

Discovered this almost by chance as not well signposted; entrance down steps at the side of the main cathedral entrance. Good audio guide; takes a little over an hour and very informative. Fascinating to discover that there were at least three earlier cathedrals on the...More

This site shows the development of the cathedral from the third century BC until now. It effectively highlights how the site developed, in both Christian and pre-Christian times. The entry fee includes an informative audio tour.
