One of the most interesting museums I've ever visited. Maybe the most interesting as well. If you have children its a must visit placein Luzern. A child can spend an entire day here,there are so many fun activities to do. Infact for an adult also,there are much fun stuff that can be done.

If I were to spend 3 days only at this Museum, I easily would have. Its big and has everything one can ask for. Do visit the i-factory and media arena (your kid can be news reporter, invisible man, etc.). Whatever you do at the media arena can easily be emailed, right at the same time? You can miss on...

I was told it is the biggest transport museum in Europe? Not sure if thats true but it is big and will take you the good part of a day to see properly. Lots of hands on interaction and fun stuff to do other than just walk around. Set out very well, divided up into the different forms of transport... More

Not to be confused with the 1997 movie by the same name, this museum is an excellent experience for both adults and children. It is a bit expensive ($30) for an adult ticket but you can spend several hours (allow at least two) and still not see every exhibit. Additionally, the Swiss Rail Pass is accepted and covers half your... More

Let us start with what is right. The location on the banks of Lake Lucerne is as good as you are going to get, and if, like us, you arrive on the ferry, then it is the start of what promises to be a magical day. Having all of Switzerland's transport history in one place is a clever concept, and... More

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.

You could easily spend a whole day here, the place is enormous and so very interesting, even to people who aren't into transport stuff.

Situated in one corner of the town it is a huge place but go if you have kids with you as they will enjoy. They have a flight simulator and a landing simulator with several hands on games and curios . Also has a huge restaurant in it .
