  • This Museum is cluttered and you are given a scanner to read bar codes that explain the items such as weapons, clothing, pottery, etc but I found it tedious and the 3 floors were very crowded and tric...  more »
  • We spent 90 minutes in the museum. What made it interesting is each person gets a bar code reader and as you looked at all kinds of items on shelves and in drawers with bar codes on each, you can read...  more »
  • Well first off it's not a history museum. It's actually a warehouse with three floors of strangely curated objects behind glass. There's precious little logic in what goes where - antique shields next...  more »

  • We visited the museum at the end of June to see the permanent exhibitions and found it to be rather mediocre. The museum contains numerous interesting artifacts, however there is no commentary or description to link the exhibits and provide a story of the region. The barcode scanners were an interesting way of displaying information as it eliminated the clutter of information stands. This may be an exhibit meant for people with a better understanding of Luzern history, but for people with a limited knowledge of the area, it left us with more questions than answers.
  • Interesting museum on the history of Switzerland. They have English translations for non German speaking people.
  • Nice and interesting, also for kids.
  • excellent exhibits, liked it
  • Cool!

Where to stay in Lucerne

Small, historical Lucerne is big in its accommodation offerings. Surrounding the bay are plenty of mid-range and upscale hotels for those looking to splurge, putting you right downtown with easy access to sights, bars, and restaurants. If your budget is tight, look into the handful of guesthouses in the city. There are limited hostels available, and they tend to be a bit farther from the city core. Be sure to book in advance to avoid missing out.
