International Red Cross and Red Crescent

First Community Sunday!

As a hub serving the local community, our Museum is once again aligning its actions with its words through the new Community Sundays initiative.
On the first Sunday of each month, every admission ticket we sell will be donated to the Geneva Red Cross. It will then redistribute them to its beneficiaries, who can use these tickets to access the museum. By putting one or several admission tickets “on tab” in this way, visitors will be doing their bit to bring culture within everyone’s reach. In time, the initiative will be expanded to include other local non-profits.

There will be a wealth of activities and surprises in store for you. Programme of the first Community Sunday below.
