Omega Museum

Inaugurated in 2019, the revamped Omega museum is in a brand new building signed by the renowned Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. You will find watches that went in space, at record depth underwater, or that belonged to Elvis and even John Kennedy, on his inauguration day.

Combined with fun activities such as sprinting with Omega Olympic photo-finish, it is one of the best watch museums in the world. Great bonus, it is one floor below the Swatch museum. The brand's HQ boutique is also just a few meters away.

SWE rating: Excellent

How much? Free

SWE tip: There is a min gift shop at the museum desk entrance, on the first floor (second floor, in American terms). The prices are extremely reasonable, eg 10 CHF for a branded mug, or 15 CHF for an Omega loupe. Considering the price range of Omega watches, those will feel like a bargain for fans of the brand!
