Very interesting place with some inventions on display. Kids can even touch and experiment with some. I have been here a few times, its not very big but you could spend half a day with your little curious ones. Age: perhaps 3 years onwards.

The park is beautiful in spring, when the impressive collection of roses is blooming. It also features some inventions that will satisfy the curiosity of the techies. Besides, it is uphill, so prepare for a little workout.

We visited this museum in Lausanne. This is a place where the very start of inventions are displayed. Very useful for kids as they could interact with the items here. Some of them have strange shapes of creativity. The tour guide could speak English but you should book the ticket for a group so as not to travel the museum... More

My kid had a great time, but this place is fairly small so it's not an all-day outing. It's nice for an hour or so, though, and indoor activities for little one are hard to come by in the Lausanne area. We went during an energy exhibit that was very informative for the adults. Not sure how much the kids... More

The good thing with this "museum" (it is way too small to be called a museum) is that it promotes science by allowing the visitors to interact. This is always good and very appreciated by kids whose short attention span is kept by all the touching they are allowed to do. I realize that it it a difficult and costly... More
