  • The performance at the planetarium appealed to the whole family a lot, the commentator was very good, funny and his knowledge made the show an exciting event. The employees in Schoggiland were very friendly, attentive and the Schoggi at the exit a welcome surprise. The children liked the playground with trampoline, driver's license, construction site very much! Here, too, the employees were attentive, nice and patient. The film at IMAX about America also excited us and we are looking forward to the next visit.

  • This museum is so big that we could spend the day! Many things to see/discover, many fun activities for children. Mechanical enthusiasts will find their happiness. 2 flats: in some places explanations in German only, and a lot of ancillary activities paid, while the price of the ticket is already quite expensive (32 CHF for an adult, but possible entry with the Luzern museum pass, 36 CHF, valid for 2 days and which gives access to the main sites in Lucerne).

  • Very comprehensive museum with lots of interactive exhibits. Good for all ages with information on history for adults and many hands on activities for kids. They even have a miniature operational boat navigation lock.
  • This is such a fun museum that it’s hard to leave. Every kind of transportation is represented. Many exhibits that brought back fond memories of favorite cars and times when things were so different. I enjoyed seeing the many Interactive exhibits for kids. Uh and adults :) I would go back to see it again. Don’t miss it!!
