Owner description: 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.

“A distraction from the rain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

I really enjoyed both my trips to the Swiss Transport Museum. It covers all transport including aerial cableways, trains, planes and boats. The interactive exhibits were very good. Well worth while even if not a transport anorak.

“This is not a museum, it is an experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Everything! cars, boats, trains, planes and a trip through space - what's not to like.
I heard the words 'transport museum' and died a little inside. But how wrong I was. You could spend weeks here.
My advise, choose your favourite form of transport and visit that area. If you have time, read the news and send it to friends by email - all on site!
Informative, spacious, interactive -not to be missed.

“Cool place to take kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

I took my under 2 son and he really seemed to enjoy the place. It's great to see all the old trains, planes and cars. We walked in one if the old trains and it was fun to let him just grab things and look around. A very enjoyable place worth visiting!
