17 Avenue de la Paix, Geneva, 1202

The basics

The Red Cross (known as the Red Crescent in Islamic countries) was started in Geneva by a group of Swiss businessmen in the 1860s, so it is fitting that a museum dedicated to the organization should be based in the city. The museum, located in the International District, aims to raise awareness of the importance of humanitarian associations that are able to act impartially across the world.

Once you’ve visited the museum, you can continue your exploration of this compact city on foot, by bike, or by Segway. Consider joining a tour of the International District to learn more about other international organizations, such as the United Nations and the World Bank, that have offices in Geneva.
