Its interactive attractions are sure to win you over – whatever the weather. Switzerland’s largest cinema screen in the Filmtheatre presents documentary films in XXL format. Meanwhile, the country’s largest, most modern Planetarium offers 360-degree flights to the stars. The Media World is where you’ll unearth new communication trends. And discover how famous Swiss chocolate is made from cocoa beans at the Swiss Chocolate Adventure visitor experience.

There are 4 attractions: Museaum - Cinéthéatre, Planétarium and Swiss Chocolate Adventure; each costing an aditional price. It is instructive and for children very educative.

Very interactive and participative museum. Excellent for kids (there are a lot of them - even during the week!). Dont get "stuck" in the train part which is first - the other sections we all found much more interesting but we had spent too long in the trains. The air/space was great as well as the boats that have a great Swiss area. Definitely needed more time than 5 hours to see it all.
Also, a bit disappointed they only have senior rates one Monday of the month... nor do the 1/2 price SwissPass or AG give you any discounts either.
I do not recommend the Planetarium as it is given in German and then you have headphone for other languages but you can still hear the German... it should be a headsets for all languages so that everyone can enjoy the show. We saw Stella Nova which was not bad but didn't really go into as much detail as we had hoped. The end was also given only in German (was someone talking about the Lucerne night sky). It was certainly very interesting but when you do not speak the language, 15min can be long.

We were very impressed by the museum. It is very done and laid out. We enjoyed watching the children play on many of the interactive exhibits. They also have a nice restaurant for coffee and or lunch. Defiantly worth the time.

This was our third trip to the Swiss Museum of Transport and they have updated a number of exhibits and added interactive exhibits such as flight simulators and train driving simulators. It is really fun and educational for everyone.
