Open for discoverers

The Swiss Museum of Transport presents the past, present and future development of transport and mobility on road, rail and water as well as in the air and space in a wide range of engaging and exciting settings. The visitors experience over 3,000 objects, superb simulators, multimedia shows and interactive platforms in an exhibition area of some 20,000 sqm.

A visit to the Swiss Museum of Transport is further enhanced by unique attractions such as the Filmtheatre (a 3D cinema), the Planetarium, the Swiss Chocolate Adventure, the Livemap Switzerland (a walk-on 200 sqm high-resolution aerial photo of Switzerland), the Nautirama and the Hans Erni Art Gallery. A Conference Centre and restaurants are as well part of the facilities.

It is a museum, a display window, a place of inspiration and learning of national significance and international reach. It is also a forum for special events and activities.
