Rife with misogyny. Not cute. Clearly someone was not getting laid. 🤢 Go support a woman's art, writing, music, and work.

Really nice museum dedicated to Hans Ruedi Giger. The exposition will make you travel through the universe of the artist and what he liked with his private collection. I would not take children under the age of 12 as some of the scenery can be disturbing
Great place for Alien fans will see a ton more of their favourite artwork. For others, it's impressive how large influence Giger had on sci-fi and pop culture. After seeing too much of the sickeningly beautiful landscapes of Switzerland, Giger museum allows your dark side to come back to balance.
