Advantages If you like pots, it's the best place in Switzerland
Disadvantages If you don't like pots and glass, this probably isn't for you
Serendipity - it's a great word, isn't it? One online dictionary defines it as "The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident" and I'm a fan of such accidental discoveries. Our most recent was the Musee Ariana in Geneva. What's the chance that my husband and I, wandering around looking for the Red Cross museum and the United Nations building, will stumble across museum dedicated to two arts that we're passionate about? We love glass and we particularly love ceramics and as we walked from the bus stop to the Red Cross museum we just happened to see the signs for the Musee Ariana. As luck would have it this is the only museum in the whole of Switzerland that's devoted to ceramics and glass. And it's FREE! Truly the gods were smiling down on us that Sunday afternoon.
Stepping into the building you walk into a giant atrium that stretches up to the ceiling. It's a spectacular building with a gallery around the upper floor from which you can look down into the atrium. There's an information desk on the left hand side as you enter and a small stall selling gifts and memorabilia at the far end.
