The Swiss Museum of Transport is not only the most-visited museum in Switzerland. It is also a special place for conferences and events. In a superb location – directly by the lake –, practical to reach by rail, coach, boat or car, the Swiss Museum of transport offers a large number of premises and a unique atmosphere for unforgettable events.

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.

Flight to the Milky Way

On 1st of July 1969, 20 days before the first moon landing, the Swiss Museum of Transport opened the largest planetarium in Switzerland. The Planetarium is a perfect and unique place for events of all kind: for example presentations, concerts, cultural activities or talks.

Unforgettable moments

The Conference Centre has a highly modern conference hall with a capacity of up to 600 people, three seminar rooms and a generous foyer. Direct access from the entrance by escalator and lift leads to the spacious Conference Center on the 2nd floor with panoramic view of the museum grounds, city, lake and mountains.

Other exhibition and meeting rooms as well as an auditorium for up to 120 people round off the diverse facilities. The four theme halls of the museum can be rented for private events. How about a refreshing aperitif or a gala dinner in the middle of the museum? Further attractions, such as the planetarium, the Filmtheatre or the Swiss Chocolate adventure provide a framework for an extraordinary accompanying programme.

Corporate events

The incorporation of museum facilities offers remarkable scope for the creation of unique events such as congresses, annual general meetings, seminars, workshops, exhibitions, product presentations or company events. Allow your imagination full rein!
