This is a nice place to go with kids or if you just want to see an overview of all of the Swiss points of interest in miniature. It’s well done. I recommend lunch and a swim at Baja. Perfect family day out.

Very satisfied to see all Switzerland in one place. There are a lot to see and we took a lot of nice pictures. Worth it to go there. It is in Melide. Transport is not a problem.

If the accept the Swiss Travel Pass, they would only offer a discount. I believe you would still have to pay to enter the park. Enjoy!

I did not see lockers however I am sure that the staff can find a place to safely keep your luggage while you visit. Have a nice trip.
