“Was not overly impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The museum was fine, but nothing too exceptional. I expected more. Was a clean, well organized museum, just not as interesting as I expected.

“Interactivity with a dash of nostalgy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I'm not a lover of museums...but when interactivity plays with history, this is where you can find me! The Alimentarium is definitely a different "museum (I don't like call it a museum)". A place where you can learn, share and enjoy elements which are linked to our everyday life. Don't miss to take a picture with the giant fork in the lake as well to shake the hand to Charlie Chaplin statue...which are located just across the road !

“Impressive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Not often there is a museum based on food. It talks about how the food culture has changed over the years, from eating habits, food consumption etc to the appliances, what the food has done to the body promoting healthy eating.

Great place for kids to learn and understand things that we take it for granted. there is a hamster spinning wheel for you to try so that you know how much energy can be burnt.

Tons of interactive games for kids and all have English description which is not that common in Switzerland. Great effort! Great job!
