Even for the smallest toddlers.. Just from the top of my head: The Natural History Museum, MAMCO, Museum of Ethnography, Geneva’s Art and History Museum, and Ariana with its kids corner and discovery trails, Firefighters’ Museum, CERN. Check their websites before going out, very regularly they hold workshops and organize events for kids of various ages (always posted on Parentville’s Instagram).
