Everything, or almost everything is closed, but is it? Thanks to the internet and human creativity we can still enjoy some of Geneva’s places! Coronavirus has pushed Geneva online and it’s looking good!

Below you’ll find resources of Geneva online places for families, kids, adults, teens, singles, couples, and everyone else!


Missing Cine 17, Cinérama Empire, Cinema du Grütli and Cinema Bio? Cinefile is a Swiss streaming service, that has currently partnered up with cinemas all across the country, including some from Geneva. By renting certain movies (provided by the theatres) you can help these local cinemas survive the COVID crisis. You can rent each movie for 48h for 7.50 CHF (sometimes less). You can choose from films from all genres, countries, and age ranges (yes! Films for kids included!). It’s one of the most enjoyable types of support – watch good cinema and support local theatres!
Here’s for example what Cinema Grutli offers: https://en-grutli.cinefile.ch/


Musee Ariana prepared 3 propositions of activities for kids. There’s origami, bread baking, and a discovery booklet.
Natural History Museum & The History of Science Museum are publishing one video a week on their Youtube channel! You can check them via their website or directly on YT.
Musee d’Art wt d’Histoire de Geneve has an interactive, fun and unique proposition for the public! It’s called „MAH Chez Vous”. It’s a smart way to make us want to browse through their collection. The goal is to choose one (or more) art pieces, take a photo of a place at ours we would like this art to be displayed. We send it all to MAH, and they reply with an edited photo – the art incorporated to the picture! Try it out here! And ask your kids to chose something for their room, too! MAH chez vous – Partagé avec nous vos oeuvres préférées

Workshops for families, children and adults no longer take place, but the Centre is convinced that creation must and can continue at home, so every week they post an interesting challenge for the kids. Practise of drawing and writing can nourish us in this period of isolation. Stay safe and draw.

Martin Bodmer Foundation proposes text illumination as boredom fighter. It’s an old art dating back from the middle-ages – hand-made decorations around the text. Your kids can write a letter to a family member, or a friend and play with this type of art. Many wonderful examples to look at the Foundation’s website.


Many, many shows – ballet, concerts, operas – are available to watch for free on their website. Each week a different program. You can access them here.
