Open to discoverers. Experience in interesting and diverse ways the development of transport and mobility by road, rail and water as well as in the air and outer space - yesterday, today and in the future. Technical achievements enable us to be mobile and shape our lives. It is only the mental agility of tinkerers, inventors and explorers that has made people as mobile as they are today. The fascinating history of transport and its vehicles together with their socio-political effects on our culture are the key themes of the Swiss Museum of Transport. More than 3000 objects displayed in an area exceeding 20,000 m² are witnesses to a moving history in the most literal sense and point to future challenges in the field of transport and mobility. Filmtheatre - The largest screen in Switzerland: Spending 40 minutes exploring a strange world, seeing the very small in close up, the very large in its true size and experiencing a whole new film dimension. Planetarium: Travel with us through the realm of the stars. No matter what the outside weather, with state-of-the-art technology we will conjure up an impressive starry sky on the dome of our planetarium. Experience an unforgettable space walk from the comfort of your armchair. Since its opening in 1969, the Swiss Museum of Transport Planetarium has been a source of fascination for young and old. Beneath the 18m dome, (projection area 508 m2) you will experience a breathtaking starry sky and discover the principles and the latest research findings from the world of astronomy. This, the only large planetarium in Switzerland, belongs to an exclusive circle able to depict dome-filling moving pictures on its 508 m2 area. The Swiss Chocolate Adventure is a new theme world that allows the visitor to learn interesting facts about the discovery, origin, production and transport of chocolate. Seeing, hearing, smelling and tasting: this multimedia voyage of discovery appeals to different senses. It illustrates the entire value creation and transport chains from the cultivation of the cocoa bean and the transport to Switzerland up to the manufacture and sale of the finished chocolate product.

I have the Swiss museum pass so I got 50% off the regular CHF30 entry fee. The museum is pretty big and has a lot of things to see. Separate buildings for trains, cars, and airplanes, as well as a pretty big park like area on between. Ultimately I found the museum a bit too kid-focused, and there were definitely... More

The Swiiss Transport Museum (Verkehrshaus) in Lucern is a fantastic experience for all lovers of old automobile, old steam engines, modern air transport. With many "hands-on" possibilities with simulators, computerized tests of skill the time spent in this museum is both nostalgic fro some and immensely entertaining and informative. Don't miss it if you visit Luzern!

I have taken my daughter here at least once a year since she was four years old. There seems to be theme changes at least once per year, so it does keep the exhibits "fresh". Even if Luzern is experiencing bad weather and you don't want to visit Pilatus, go out on the lake, or wander the old town, this... More

The train exhibit is outstanding. There is so much to see and do. Lots of activities for kids. There is a café to have a bite to eat but its very expensive. A slice of pizza was $7 francs. Be sure to see the airplane exhibit too.
