  • I love coming and coming back to this place. The axpo are interesting, even if the lack of permanent exhibitions does not change much. Children can see all the animals: savannah, dinosaurs... A floor on Earth and the evolution of man allows us a photo next to the reproduction of Lucie. I enjoy this place in winter when outdoor activities are reduced and on Sundays as car parks on the surface of Geneva are free.

  • Such a nice place to visit while in Geneva. It’s free and it’s so organised and has so many things to look at. Everyone should do a visit. You can go there by bus from the city centre. Really handy and it is very quick.
  • It was my second time here. It’s a good (free) place to go. The exhibits were fun and interesting even if you couldn’t read everything! I would definitely recommend this for any age!
