Red Cross Museum

Recommended
Restructured in 2013, the International Museum of the Red Cross and the Red Crescent is divided into three themes: the defence of dignity, rebuilding families and limiting natural risks. The design of each section was entrusted to a contemporary artist. The modern museum layout and inventive displays are eminently moving. Testimonials (conscripts, victims, experts) and the heirs of Henry Dunant, founder of the movement, ask questions and raise the visitor's awareness.
