  • Looks like their prime goal is to occupy hundreds of kids at same time. Very fuzzy itinerary inside museum and lots of queues on simulators and stuff.

  • Great technology museum. All technical achievements in the field of airplanes, cars and ships can be admired by name. I was particularly fascinated by the astronautics area in combination with the planetarium and is definitely worth the visit alone. A great experience for young and old.
  • Fantastic museum for the whole family. This museum is professional operated, and there are many age appropriate activities. There is a nice blend of education and entertainment. Compared to the pathetically operated Fifa Museum in Zurich this was a breath of fresh air. The employees and management are very wise and take pride in their establishment. Highly recommend.
  • Great museum. You can 'travel' across all types of transports grouped in four main frames, railroad vehicles, cars and road transportation, boats and water vehicles and planes and space vehicles. Absolutely worth a visit!
  • Amazing place. More than enough to fill a full day even without the planetarium, filmtheatre and chocolate adventure. 2 days would be better and more relaxed. The best section is the planes so don't leave it to last and run out of time!
  • Best interactive museums I have visited. Plan to stay there for at least 3 hours if you want to carefully check all the rooms and exponates out there. Big parking near the museum. Plenty of different transport types and various models for every class. Must be visited.
