Very informative to tell about how glaciers are formed. The mansion showing how rich people live in the past years was impressive. Don't miss the mirror hall, it was very interesting, especially when you have kids.

More extensive than the signs would indicate and worth a visit. Well presented media and interesting gardens and house.

Easily approachable and in heart of Lucerne. The mirror maze is enjoyable for kids. And you can do the Lion Monument and the museum at one go. I would recommend to go there but not spend the entire day there.

Went here because it was included in our Swiss Pass for free entrance. The mirror maze was good entertainment for the children and the rock glacier was interesting to see. I wouldn't pay to come in though, would rather do other things. But good if you have the time and the Swiss Pass. Lion monument was outside and we just... More

This museum is nice, you learn about the glacier covering Luzern a long time ago. But the cool thing is at the end. There is a mirror labyrinth and it is funny to go there with friends and split then try to find the real person back :-)

This is right next to the Dying Lion monument and was really interesting. My family didn't know what to expect. It was a mixture of so much that it kept us intrigued and marvelled at what was in this place. So much to see, learn and lots of interactive information. My 10yo son loved this place with its information on... More
