  • Kids had a lot of fun. Very well maintained. Fair amount of eating options. Chocolate tour was nice. If your kids are young, you could easily spend a day here.
  • Amazing place for adults and kids. Can easily spend more than a day here. Great outside area for the kids to play and learn. Only disappointment was the car section was closed.
  • Fantastic experience. If you are a tourist in Luzern, do budget a half day here as time flies fast when you are there. To add to it if you decide that you want to watch the show at the Planetarium, take the chocolate experience and a movie at their theatre, then it is going to take longer. All in all it is all very worth it. If you have a Swiss Pass you get a 50% discount on the entry to the museum.
  • An amazing place for transportation lovers. You get to experience the evolution of the entire Swiss transport system. History, games, simulators, food, videos, media world, planetarium, trip to chocolate factory, future transport model and the list goes on. Plan your trip starting early in the morning because the entire day might not be enough. Some of the experiences are paid but it is definitely worth the cost. Wonderful memories to take away and cherish for lifetime.
  • Nice place for kids and adults to spend a day..we could not see planetarium show as the last show is at 3pm!! Otherwise it was very informative and fun..kids enjoyed the small boat ride within the museum and the demonstration of steam engine was too good
