Great for a visitor for whom science fiction is a passion. Excellent Jules Verne library. Free entry for Raiffeisen sociétaire with Maestro Card.

Didn't feel to much affiliated with the museum. A museum for Science Fiction books is not really something you want to see. Despite this the organisers gave their best. Jules Verne sector is worth it.

The reason I decided to visit the museum was that multiple reviews stated how unique and amazing it is. In my opinion though it is pretty average and small. The interactive part of the 'Dancing with the Stars' exhibition was alright, but I found the...More

And I am such a fan. Every exhibition I have seen here has been excellent (superheros, robots, russian films...) There is also a wonderfully atmospheric library of rare fantasy books where fascinating mini exhibitions can take place.

This one has been a recurring treat over the years, and such an unlikely one too. Consider this: Yverdon is a smaller-sized Swiss "city" halfway between much more regionally important places: Lausanne and Bern. It has little to recommend it beyond its thermal baths. Why...More
