What an awesome museum for the kiddos! Allows you to take a peek inside the methods of transportation throughout Switzerland and also gives you a full history of the system. There’s a really nice gift shop and a cafeteria with lots of seating room. Very easy to get here if you take the cruise over from central Luzern. Only a 2 minute walk from the cruise. There’s also a cute park close by.
Excellent museum. I could spend entire day in each of the pavilions. There are also a lot of family oriented and kids oriented activities. A must if you visit Lucerne, definitely high in the list of tourist attractions. But a warning - if you are a transport enthusiast, plan at least a day in order not to be disappointed. After the museum is closed a walk around the lake could be enjoyed in the evening.
