Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMCO)

Geneva’s Museum of Modern and Contemporary art—or MAMCO—is a vast contemporary art museum located in a former physical laboratory in an up-and- coming area filled with dozens of trendy art galleries and hip coffee shops; a veritable hub for Geneva’s creative types. The museum itself is specialized in experimental exhibits and notoriously non-traditional, keen to push the limits of originality by continuously coming up with bold ideas and novel styles. While MAMCO does have a mindboggling and acclaimed 4,000-item permanent collection, what really sets it apart is the four temporary exhibits it welcomes every year in order to keep things diversified and unexpected.
