This is a must visit place in Lucerne town. I cannot describe accurately the kind of vehicles dating back centuries which are kept for display. We could also get a glimpse of the Swiss technology at work.

Didn't realize there would be an extensive collection of cable car mechanisms! And an indoor ski ramp! And fun interactive games, but actual children got there first.

We came to here when it was rainy day and spent all day here. Started with chocolate train and went to planetarium and saw the movie Jerusalem and ended with walking through the transportation museum. İt is a must in lucerne ;)

We enjoyed seeing the museum finally after visiting family in the area a number of times. Great old trains and models with some cars and aircraft on top. The complex is quite large and uncramped. It also includes a medium sized IMAX theater and a planetarium (which we'll visit next time).

History enthusiast will love this museum. They have displayed old engines and cars. By son just freaked out playing as crane driver. Though shows in english will benefit more. There plane simulator was awesome, but a big queue for the same. My husband and son went for it and me and my daughter had to settle with the helicopter one.... More

It was my first museum of this type. We spent at least 2 hours exploring different types of transport. Really great collections in very good shape. They also run some movies and for extra charge you could go for chocolate show.

This is not a good museum for those who have visited really good transport museums around the world and expect something of similar quality. The trains section, however, WAS good but the cars were terrible, and aviation poor. Marine was ok. The main problem is that the museum tries to be a fun day for small children. They don't seem...

Lots to do and see. Loads of hands-on activities for the children. Imax film, planetarium, Chocolate story.... Good value for money for a whole day's entertainment. Good self service restaurant for lunch.
