We spent about 5 hours at the Swiss Transport Museum, and that was without visiting the Planetarium, Cinema or Chocolate Experience. If you are a transport lover there are trains, planes, boats, cars, cablecars, helicopters and space item galore. It's a large site with lots to see and do, and definitely will keep husbands happy ;-)

Positive You can see where chocolate comes from and how it is made in a pleasant manner. You sit in a chocolate ball and travel through the world of chocolate. Smell and taste the chocolate. Negative There is a separate entrance fee of CHF 15.- (entrance fee for the museum is CHF 30.-) which is very expensive in my opinion.... More

The museum is amazing, we were there from 10am to 5 pm and still didn’t see and do everything, it’s fully interactive, almost every display is set up for you to touch, feel and immerse yourself in, plus the kids got to whizz around on scooters from hall to hall! We got to fly airplanes, drive trains, ride diggers, and... More

Switzerland's publci traffic I think is the best of the world, specially the trains as they have to get up and down thousands meters high mountain ranges. The Verhershaus shows the old timer of the transport which is a part of the Swiss history.

This has to be one of the best transport museums I have ever visited. Plenty to see, will take easily half a day. The car section is very good. Suitable for all ages. If you are visiting Lucerne, it is well worth a visit.

Excellent for kids with lots of interactive displays. We went without young children but could see all children enjoying themselves. Especially good were the car displays - they move them remotely and you can choose which one you want to look at more closely.

Our 4 kids (16 to 8) has a great time at this museum. We spent the best part of 5 hours there. Highlights were the large artificial sailing pond (with real sail boats!), the helicopter simulator (the fighter plane simulator looks fun as well but the queue was much longer), the classic cars and the model of the Gotthard railway.

This is a great museum. For all ages. A must visit in Lucern. People of all ages will like it. I enjoyed the place. You will need probably half day to go around all the museum.

This was our second time visiting the Verkehrshaus and once again we were three generations ambling around for hours on end. The children didn't have much memory of our previous visit but they certainly will remember and talk about this one for a long time. There is something for everyone to see, for every interest and age group as well... More
