At the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, embark on the Humanitarian Adventure and find yourself immersed in over 150 years of humanitarianism. Three highly interactive exhibitions (Defending Human Dignity, Restoring Family Links and Reducing Natural Risks) take you through some of the world’s greatest humanitarian crises, link them directly to issues that are happening now and those that loom in the not too distant future. Out of all the museums in Geneva, this one is likely to leave the strongest impression.
