Museum HR Giger
The HR Giger Museum in Gruyères (between the lake of Geneva and Fribourg) is the permanent home of an impressive collection of the work of the Swiss surrealist HR Giger, the Academy Award winning designer of the "Alien" in Ridley Scott's groundbreaking films.
It is 2 hours by car from Annecy, not really recommanded for kids (we took ours but explained to them a few things before and it was ok!).
HR Giger was a real artist for Aliens but to be honest he must have been a strange guy to create all that, it is an unusual Museum but still interesting!
In front of the Museum, you will find a bar decorated with the same style as the Museum, we enjoyed a drink there, we had fun there on the turning bones chairs!!!
HR Giger's grave is down the village in the local cemetery.
