    Interesting

    Jun 21: Before taking the train to Zurich, we came here to understand about glaciers, rocks, formations and the mountains. A good visit.

    Very interesting display

    Although much of this complex was under renovation, the display of the glacial rocks, with good explanatory information was definitely worth the visit

    Eons Ago

    This was under expansion so not all was available for viewing but you do get to see and understand the glacier holes.

    Surprisingly enjoyable visit

    Great place to visit on a rainy day with genuinely good information on glaciers and their formation. Also enjoyed the mirror maze and the viewing tower at the top which offered a nice view of Lucerne.
