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.

Great museum, do not skip the Jules Verne room as is outstanding. We had a lovely time and will be happy to go back for another exhibit.

Spent a happy hour here enjoying the interactive exhibits. Even our teenage son was engaged. Located in beautiful old town of yverdon. If here - make a beeline!

Wikipedia has a great little write up on this museum. We felt it was well worth the visit, but you do have to know French to enjoy the videos that provide much of the background info. There is a really fun demonstration of 3D goggles,...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

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,...More
