© 2001 HR Giger Arh+ Editions/ - All rights reserved

In the last nine years since its grand opening in 1998, the HR Giger Museum
has welcomed 280,000 visitors from all over the world. For the many Giger
fans who have not yet been able to make the trip to Gruyeres, Switzerland,
we offer you a quick Virtual Reality Tour of the HR Giger Museum and its many exhibition rooms, including exterior views of the museum and the village of Gruyeres. These QuickTime VRs were made at the end of the year 2000 by Andreas Gothe. For more elaborate Virtual Reality tour that reflect all the changes that have occurred at the museum since then, including the Giger Museum Bar and the H.R. Giger Museum Gallery, please visit our sister website

To see the VR's you need at least QuickTime 3.0 and the appropriate
plug-in for your web browser which is part of QuickTime.
Javascript must be enabled!
