Admission to the permanent exhibitions in the City of Geneva’s museums is free.
Over 1,000 objects, remarkable messengers from cultures all over the world, have been selected from the 80,000 items in the MEG’s collections to feature in the permanent display. Its museographic and scientific design spotlights objects of exemplary historic or anthropological value, works likely to be admired for their aesthetic qualities, but also for their affective and emotional dimensions. Alongside this exhibition, a rich and daring multidisciplinary program of concerts, workshops, shows, lectures and visits will make this new outward-looking museum an attractive cultural venue.
