  • This is a very well done museum with a lot of great interactive elements. It's a nice mix of indoor and outdoor activities and is great for kids! Easily accessible by public bus and there is a lovely park and lake view across from the entrance. Note the the Swiss Chocolate Experience is pretty weird and could use some improvement in efficiency. We did enjoy the virtual reality experience and the film.
  • Great location to spend a whole day with family and/or kids. It is a pure fun place especially for kids. They learn lots of interesting topics such as transportation or communication. We got the annual pass in order to visit the place several times per year.
  • Very interesting interactive museum with lot of things to do for the kid. It is worth of spending a day or even two. Large car collection, several aircrafts and even some boats. Many interactive attractions, but some work only during specified time. The coolest part is railroad history, with some steam engines displayed in perfect condition. Kids can also learn how steam engine works. Great place!
  • The best place to explore about transportation. There has most of vehicles models, miniatures, simulators and open area. Good to go alone or with families. There also has restaurants, several restroom, mini theater, and also mini classic car show. Kids also can ride in mini train in real railroad and so others playable mini mobile vehicle. And you can also buy some collectable miniatures in the gift shop. Worth your time to be there a while.
  • One of the BEST museum for Kids and aduts! Interactive and very informative! You need at least a day here to fully enjoy all of the sections. We will surely return.
