“interesting mirror maze”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

There are several exhibitions in this place, but I found them quite boring. The only interesting object in the museum is mirror maze but considering this - price for the entrance ticket is too high 15 chf.

“Next to the Lion Monument”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Worth a visit. Quite a large museum with two main buildings, one of which is mostly for the kids with a mirror maze, etc. Also they have extensive outside exhibits to visit. Great place to take the kids or to get a better understanding of how glaciers do what they do.

“great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Although you might be attracted by the name its not the rather bland bit of rock that you should go in for. No its the museum with its historic maps and models detailing the exploration of the Luzern region and beyond to the Alps. Great value, nice café too

“If you like geology!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This was very well done! The glacier and geological facts were presented in lay mans terms making it easy for families and those unfamiliar with this subject, enjoy the specialness of the find.

“Petty Cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Great little museum showing the geologic history of the region. The garden itself was very interesting.
