One of my favorite museums in Geneva - the museum of natural history. It features lots of animal types, from the extinct to the living ones (they have a two-headed turtle!). It is really impressive and is very well presented. It is also free to visit.

Nightclub
If you a fan of night life, you should try this one. One of the newest nightclubs that apparently got to the locals' favorites quite fast. Keep in mind that parties in Geneva start quite late, usually from 23h (11:30 pm), not before. So if you show up at 22h (10 p.m.) it is possible that the club will be empty :)
