  • It's a really cool place all about the different modes of transport one can find. From everything like flight simulators to interactive exhibitions, it's a great trip for those even remotely interested in these kinds of stuff. Moreover, the place is huge, and one can spend over a few hours covering everything, so do leave time!
  • Every chapter is great and interactive for kids and adults. You will even be able to enter an old elegant Swissair plane and a Rega Helicopter. The site is huge and friendly. You could spend 2 days. Restaurant canteen is available on site ($$$) and chocolate exhibition. Great experience.
