International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum

Following a nearly two-year makeover, Geneva’s International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum has reopened with two guiding themes - hope and human resilience.

The new permanent exhibit, called "The Humanitarian Adventure", is themed and features many interactive aspects, including 12 witness stories, from a former child soldier to a landmine victim. The three thematic areas include Defending Human Dignity, Restoring Family Links and Reducing Natural Risks.

The museum, which is next to the International Committee of the Red Cross Headquarters in Geneva, underwent a 20-million Swiss franc ($21-million, 16-million-euro) renovation. 600 square metres were added to the permanent exhibition space and a brand-new temporary exhibition space stretching across 500 square metresthat will open next year.

Private events can be arranged in the Henry Dunant Area on the ground floor. Accessible from the museum's entrance foyer, this room, measuring 153 m2, is lit by natural light and can accommodate 100 people for a meeting or a reception.
