HR Giger became an internationally renown artist through his biomechanical art and the creation of Alien, which earned him an Oscar in 1980. His museum showcases a variety of his most important creations, reflecting his mythical-magical universe.

The adjacent Giger Bar with its gothic arches represents one of the artist's most beautiful works of art - its features and furnishings evoke the appearance of stone relicts in old cathedrals... and exert a mesmerizing effect on its visitors.
