Swiss Museum of Transport

A paradise for inquisitive minds

At the Swiss Museum of Transport, the development of mobility on rail, road, water, in the air and in space is presented in an exciting and varied way. The exhibitions on the history of transport are complemented by the interactive permanent exhibition on energy and electricity - "Experience Energy" is the motto. More than 3,000 objects, simulators, multimedia shows and interactive exhibitions in an area of around 20,000 square metres provide an easy way to spend a day.

Opened in 1959, the Museum of Transport is now the most visited museum in Switzerland. The whole family gets their money's worth at the Museum of Transport in Lucerne. Cars, ships, trains and aeroplanes can be viewed and climbed on. Immerse yourself in the world of electronic media and become a star for a brief moment in the Media World television studio. In the Swiss Chocolate Adventure, you can experience the production of chocolate from A to Z and look over the shoulders of Lindt's master chocolatiers.
