A yet hidden gem in Switzerland. Museum not only for Science Fiction fans, with very interesting and well researched exhibitions. Also, they do a great in giving you an up-to-date museum experiece. Sensible use of different media types (sound, motion pictures, etc).

If you love sci-fi, stop here. Only a few interactive exhibits, and mostly paintings and art. The library was very neat but it was hard to read the titles behind the glass. I enjoyed the collection of old RPGs, and the Lego exhibits were nifty, but not spectacular. I'd say this is iffy with kids.

I thought that this would be a fun, wacky place with lots of big, crazy displays and life size models from films and interactive exhibits, with a section on real life aliens and artifacts etc. But it was in fact just boring white rooms with lots of books on display. It was like going to a library just for science... More

I love the Maison d'Ailleurs since my early years. The place is fantastic and their exibitions are unique and not only for geeks. I highly recommend this place if you are seeking for something différent and original

We went to this expo last week and thoroughly enjoyed it - nice new decor & very informative on the comic / films of super heros. The juke box with the music of various Batman films was fun & the room with the life-size statues of Batman etc. well done. I feel it is good to support local museums and... More

I didn^t like it at all! Go there if you are a huge fan of science-fiction otherwise don^t go! For me, it was really boring but I can bet you^ll like it if you like BD. Otherwise, it^s not worth a look !

I'm not a huge fan of sci-fi but my partner enjoys it. The temporary exhibition when we went was on superheroes and comics and was very enjoyable. Lots of cool memorabilia as well as interesting contemporary art inspired by comics and superheroes. It's only small but worth taking the time to visit if the permanent exhibition appeals to you.

I stumbled upon this museum while walking around in Yverdon and loved it! It's fairly small, but very neat. It's a welcome change from the historic museums and sites, which are great too, but it's nice to try something new. I enjoyed the paintings and sculptures of aliens and space heroes!

If you are not you might struggle. Definitely for sci-fi buffs only! Books on display go back years and fans will recognise most of them. Excellent exhibition on at the moment on the Russian film 'Stalker'. Enjoyable visit.
