Unfortunately we visited Zurich on a very wet and rainy weekend. I purchased a Zurich Card mainly because we would be using the bus, tram and train so much but boy was I excited to find out it also included FREE admission to museums. My 11 year old son wanted to go here mainly for the fossil and prehistoric exhibition. I really enjoyed the human body and anatomy exhibition as my son and I were able to touch bones and have great discussions throughout. The second level of the museum is about "100 smells". Very interesting and interactive exhibit. I really enjoyed this part of the museum as I felt the two of us were really enjoying "quality time" together which is difficult to come by in the hectic 40 hr/week US lifestyle. Mostly all of the displays and explanations are in German. Neither one of us speak German but we had no problem playing the interactive games, puzzles and smelling different scents. You can get to the museum on a short tram ride from any of the city stops, just look for tram 3 or 8 (Hottingerplatz) or tram 15 (Englischvierelstrasse) and it's less than a two minute walk from either stop. I recommend this museum for children of all ages and adults, especially if you are stuck in Zurich on a rainy day.
