Red Cross Museum

Recommended
A witness to the terrible battle of Solferino (1859), the Genevan businessman Henri Dunant had the idea of creating a movement to assist injured people, the Red Cross, created in 1863. Here the visitor is invited to take a moving journey through history which inspires respect and thought. Here you will find out about the missions in which the organisation took part, and the variety and scale of its actions which are, unfortunately, still needed.
