We took our four year old and one year old to this museum. The kids were free to the museum and they really enjoyed it. We could have stayed there all day--but due to time constraints could not. There is a train outside that the kids were very excited to ride- it only costs 2 extra francs to ride. We... More

I went to this museum to see the Swiss Chocolate Adventure ride and learn more about the chocolate making process in Switzerland, and was not disappointed at 2 young adults we had a fantastic time in the tour, and despite the my limited interest the museum was fantastic, super interesting and even more importantly, super interactive. Overall a fantastic day,... More

Being a train and aviation buff and a retired airline pilot, i was looking forward to this museum. At 30 CH this is probably the most expensive museum i have ever been in. It was fantastic for children, lots of hands on stuff. For adults though I would have prefered much less rides i.e. the Boeing Museum in Seattle. It... More

I only went to the museum because my son and husband wanted to go, I am so glad I went. The place is well laid out and very informative with a lot of interactive things to do. The central area is a child's paradise with so much to do, wish I was a child again. The restaurant had a good... More

Great place with loads to do. Great for a day out with family who love planes trains and automobiles. There was also a parachute display on which was different. Well worth a visit.

This is an excellent museum, interesting for all family, and especially so for teenagers, well informative. Beside the main museum, you are offered a choice of 1 3-D movie. Models and history of trains, planes, traffic... Unfortunately we had few hours there, one should put a full day for this place..

Best of the museum was about Swiss Railway & engines. The car section has an ingeneous rack system with a large variety of cars (even a Red Bull F1 car) which you can select from & display on the turntable with a voiced description & explanation of your selection. This is definitely worth a visit if you are interested in... More

This museum is for everyone who wants to know how transport things work and how they have developed over modern times. Excellent display and highly informative. Swiss precision at its best. A little expensive but well worthit.

We simply could not get enough of this place even though we spent a full day here. It was fun for adults and kids alike.
