This museum is amazing! We originally planned to spend three, maybe four hours here. After all, how much can this place hold our children's attention. Turns out that between the train hall with its simulations, the car hall with its mirror maze, or the yard with the 'games' that demonstrate transportation using ships, trains, trucks and airplanes - three hours flew by with us barely noticing it. We ended up spending the entire day here, and still skipping out on things we wanted to see. We didn't even do the chocolate tour!
A fantastic museum! At least half a day can be spent here looking at the massive amount of exhibits. There's even a Swissair jet airliner to walk through. A lot of the exhibits are 'hands on" so you can try driving a train or a Swiss post motorbike! Very impressive and well worth the entrance fee.
