Event Info

Dignity trampled underfoot

Where: Geneva, Switzerland

When: 18.05.2013 - 20.05.2013

Twenty-five years after it first opened, the Museum needed to reflect today’s changing world, and particularly the changes affecting humanitarian action. Launched in 2006 by its Director, Roger Mayou, the ideas have now culminated in « The Humanitarian Adventure », a new permanent exhibition planned around three crucial topics: « Defending human dignity », « Restoring family links » and « Reducing natural risks ». Released from a perspective primarily guided by history, the new-style museography looks to the future and brings a message of hope.

Discover the new Museum: grand reopening on 18, 19 and 20 May, from 10 am to 6 pm every day - Programme
