  • It's a brilliant museum with so much fun and play for kids. There are so many things to do and to play both indoor and outdoor. Trampoline, little SBB train ride, ship ride, virtual aircraft controlling, long slide... The museum is big enough to entertain all kids and adults with different sorts of games and exhibitions. Kids can spend the whole day there and never get bored. There's a big restaurant in the museum. It serves different kind of food and definitely calm your hungry kids down. The museum is also very easy to be accessed by public transport(train+bus). Not far from the museum, you will see a piece of grassland with wonderful lake view, it's a perfect place for picnic before or after the museum tour.
  • Best ever. Big presentation. You can touch, go inside vehicles, experience and play. 3-4 hours tour and you don't get tired. Very recommended.
  • You almost need two days to see this incredible Museum. From the trains both old and new to the submarines boats planes and cars if you are not impressed with this Museum nothing will make you happy. The collection of classic cars in Swiss made automobiles is nothing short of world-class! I hope I get to come back one day and see the rest of the museum we spent 6 hours here and still only saw three-quarters of it.
  • Nice entertainment for kids and adults too..Space section s too gud...esp loved the space walk over here... Nice and well planned infrastructure museum
  • Loved it... Keep ample of time when you visit it... Kids will love the outside play area and there are many interactive games inside where the adult can also play around.

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.
