Lots of things to see here, helps if one understands German as most of the labels are not available in any other language but that really doesn’t detract from the experience.

This was an interesting museum that had some "general, world-wide" stuff as well as local displays that concentrated on the region. To anyone who said there was "nothing in English," they needed to rotate the triangular info boards until the English was facing out. It...More

Interesting nature displays which kids would find fun. No English information available, so of limited interest to us as seniors. Was included in our city museum pass - would not suggest you pay for entry to this place if you don't speak German.

Small museum which packs a bit of a punch on the insect/butterfly front. Lots of wonderful exhibits and great showcases. Also had the chance to see local birds/animals and mushrooms/trees etc. Enjoyed my visit very much. However my husband does not have as much German...More

Nature Museum of Lucerne is similar to others of its kind: good crystal collection, stuffed animals, and a lot of other nature related things to see and learn about. But what makes it unusual is the "insectarium" on the last floor. You get a special...More

This is not one of the world's premier natural history museums. It has a few interesting things but nothing spectacular. Be aware that it is all in German.

There is a brief leaflet in English for this museum but otherwise it is all in German. It's still an interesting visit and was really nice watching the bee hive with the bees flying in and out through perspex tubes to the outside world!
