The main draw for many at this child-friendly museum dedicated to the natural world is the ‘Luzerner Drachenstein‘ (Lucerne Dragonstone), which, legend has it, fell from a dragon’s mouth as it flew over Mt Pilatus. Realistically, it’s most likely a meteorite, but this Game of Thrones-style story is a nice backdrop to further explorations of the city’s surrounds.
The museum itself is good in its willingness to allow hands-on exploration and much of its collection focuses on flora, fauna (so much taxidermy under one roof!) and geology of Central Switzerland. Excellent temporary exhibitions last for six months.
