Gruyères: The HR Giger Museum

 Museum HR Giger : Gruyères, CH

In addition to being famous for cheese and double cream, Gruyères is also well-known for being the home of the HR Giger Museum. Giger is best known for his work on the movie Aliens. This museum pays homage to his career and his private collection. It is, to say the least, bizarre. Photography isn't allowed inside the museum, so these are all exterior shots. Kitty-corner to the museum is the Giger Bar. The last photo is from inside the bar.
