Went there by myself and I must admit my inner child came out running. Filled with all the cars, bikes, boats and planes you can imagine, and you get to play with most of it. So just go and have tons of fun. If you have children, this is not optional, it is a must.

I have visited this museum several time, the first when I was 8 or 9. And it is really cool to go there again with my 5 yrs old son! There is much to see and more to explain to a small kid. It got really interactive over the years, but offers as well excellent playgrounds in the transports topic.... More

If you answered "yes" to any of these, please do yourself a favor and visit the Verkehrshaus der Schweiz . This place has so much cool history, memorabilia, and information. The exhibits and programs can be enjoyed by people... More

The museum of transport is every time a high-light, also for children. Especially the big swiss satelite picture on the floor is very interesting for people from all over the world.
