Hi,

What is the admission fee for Museum of Transportation in Luzern? I checked the website but found it confusing as it said free with Swiss Travel Pass while another page said it's 50% with Swiss Travel Pass. Can someone please clarify?

Also, would like to know if Traveler Check is commonly used in Switzerland. If so, any processing fee?

Thanks!

Hi kargee,

The admission fee is CHF 30, or CHF 15 if you have a Swiss Travel Pass.

I've never used a Travelers Cheque or seen someone use it. They might be accepted, but I don't know. Debit cards and cash are the main way to pay, and credit cards for larger amounts (from CHF 25 or so).

Hi Kargee -

I used to use travelers checks a lot, years ago when traveling to Switzerland, but they have become very uncommon with the common use of credit cards and bank ATM's.

In fact, banks in the USA have stopped issuing them in many cases.

My guess is that they might still be usable to get Swiss Franks at a currency exchange in a train station...at least the main ones....or at a bank.

That is a guess. ;-)

I'd certainly not bet my trip on my being right.

The customer question/contact link on the SBB website might have an answer about the train station currency desks.
