  • Amazing Transport Museum, very instructive and in which many things can be learned and where children enjoy activities outdoors, have many things to make the imagination of children. The contest area particularly liked to guess car models and history of the brands that there have, for lovers of automobiles is amazing. Highly recommended and even spend the day in the area. It's beautiful.

  • Very interesting museum on all different kinds of transport. Adults and children alike will not be disappointed! From miniature railways to boatyards, there are plenty of things to keep children entertained. The restaurant serves good food at decent prices for the area, and the experience as a whole is brilliant. Would definitely come back again. If you're staying nearby (or further away due to its fantastic connections by public transport) it is a must see.
  • Huge museum with endless exhibits, large and small. Many interactive exhibits, theatre with history of Lake Laverne was very charming. We spent nearly four hours there, probably a personal best for duration of museum visits. Trains, planes, cars, boats, submarines, gliders, spacecraft all in profusion. A lot of old rare gorgeous cars. Worth the $32 (Swiss).
  • Great day out with the children! So much to see AND do. There is something interesting to everyone, from ages 1.5 to 100+! We also like the restaurant, which has a good selection of dishes, including vegetarian and child-friendly menus. There's also a salad bar and a soup option (this could be improved). Coffee, teas and desserts are on offer. The restaurant gets busy from 12:00 to 13:30.
  • Usually I find museums boring but Swiss Museum of Transport is something out of this world. I don't know why they call it a museum. There are so many interactive things to do at Swiss Museum of Transport. If you are with kids (or if you have child-like curiosity), you will easily spend an entire day interacting with all exhibits. There are separate sections for trains, cars, planes, boats & even space (where you can walk in Zero gravity). Visit this excellent museum once in a lifetime for sure.
  • Most suitable for children. A thoughtful mix of hands on fun and facts ensure kids are engaged. Can easily spend 4-5 hours. Has good basic facilities..very close to the bus stop. English speaking staff.
