Trip Report HR Geiger Museum Review

Jump to last reply

You probably already know that HR Geiger designed the sets for "Alien" as well as the creature that devoured people. I found it a bit unsettling but my wife loves such things. So to please her I planned a stop during our recent trip at a museum set up by Geiger to display his works and his vivid imagination.
The museum is in Gruyere, Switzerland about an hour north and west of Geneva.
It's a small place, apparently a converted 4 story house with many side rooms. Each room contains displays of his works with much space devoted to the "Alien" sets. Some rooms even contain domestic furniture such as a dining table and chairs that would put any person of ordinary sensibilities off his feed for days.
They are numerous rooms devoted to his erotic efforts, . If your taste runs to the bizarre this might work for you. Not for kids however.
On the whole I found the place unpleasant especially because I was having GI problems and this added to my misery. Remember there's a warning beacon in the movie. This place should come with one. On the other hand, wife quite enjoyed it and she insists that I tell you that from her perspective this place is worth the trip...
