What people are saying about Lucerne

Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 162 reviews

This ticket fully covers everything in the museum, so if you really have time to spend a whole day in the museum with your family or so, it’s definitely worth. But the point is we still had to be on a long cue to get the tickets, so more precise information might be needed on how to use this online booking there.

What an unexpected delight

We took our children (6 & 9yrs old) and they had an absolute ball. There was so much to do in there and we especially loved the space exhibition and the amazing rotating machine. If we had stayed longer in Lucerne, l would have gone back there again as we couldn’t get through it all in one visit.

Lot's of interesting exhibits and lots of historical and technical information + IMAX with various movies (including some in 3d) + a Planetarium + a chocolate experience.

The trip was excellent, all going as advertised. Mr. Gallus was perfect as the trip leader. He is a Zurich expert.

Do watch the movies and go for the chocolate show in which they tell u how they make the famous Swiss chocolate.
