Lucerne Swiss Museum of Transport Entrance Ticket

3. Lucerne Swiss Museum of Transport Entrance Ticket

Head inside the Swiss Museum of Transport with your entrance ticket and explore at leisure. The museum charts the development of rail, air, space, road and water travel with hands-on exhibits, simulators and multimedia displays. Your ticket gives you access to its key exhibition halls and areas, filled with more than 3,000 displays, making for a fun day out for adults and kids. Visit the Aviation Hall to view historic aircraft and flying machines. The museum takes its exhibits to new heights with flight simulators that give you the rush of operating an airplane, helicopter or hang glider. When it's time to get grounded, walk around the Rail Transport Hall to see steam locomotives and model railways, and try your hand at negotiating tunnels, signals and bridges in train simulators. Zoom over to the Road Transport Hall for the history of automobiles and to view 20 of the world’s most iconic cars. You can even turn into a crash-test dummy to experience a bruise-free collision in one interactive exhibit. Other attractions include the Navigation Hall with its fascinating seagoing displays; the i-factory covering information technology; and the Swissarena where you can walk across a one-of-a-kind aerial photo of Switzerland that takes up an entire room. The Media World presents the multifaceted world of media: amongst other things, visitors can produce their own content in a professional TV studio, practice their directing skills, test the editing suite, and discover the opportunities up-to-the-minute media technologies have to offer. Most people find two–three hours in the museum is sufficient, but your ticket lets you explore for as long as you like. For a supplement you can also visit the museum's domed planetarium to witness its dazzling astronomical shows, or its Filmtheater to watch spectacular 3D and high-definition movies.

What people are saying about Swiss Museum of Transport

Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 77 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.

Excellent museum. You can easily spend hours here. I loved the Swiss Chocolate Adventure ride. There are rail, road, sea, and air vehicles to explore.

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