Unfortunately we visited Zurich on a very wet and rainy weekend.

Kulturama is exactly the sort of place that everyone should have nearby. Age 5 to 65, we all loved it. We experimented, we played, we learned, we had fun.

There are another two floors of exhibit which the kids went around pretty quickly but were well entertained over two or three hours. le Pain... More

The Kulturama museum is great for kids who enjoy science museums. It is stocked with great exhibits, high quality displays, and hands on activities. Right now, most of the displays are described in German, however, if you know the basics of evolution, the human body, and paleontology you can explain a lot using the exhibits as your guides. There is... More
