  • This is a quite good museum, especially for kids. Many different kinds of "transport" items, as expected (cars, boats, trains, and planes). There are many items you can touch or try - what makes kids interested and involved. There are attractions for little ones and for teens. I don't think an adult would be much impressed by the museum collection but as a family it worth 2-3 hour visit.
  • Really nice museum. Its free of charge at sundays. Full rout is short - about one hour but worthwhile
  • Wonderful place to visit. Museum has a lot of exhibition showing the history of different transport development. You can buy tickets and upload the free museum guide at the reception desk. There are a lot of interactive things for kids as well.
  • Very cool museum. It has some interactive pieces too. Entry was free of charge the day i went. Totally worth making a visit.
  • Amazing exhibits, lots of interactive stuff to do - plan at least two hours with kids.
