Visited Neuchâtel and so glad I did. Got on the train from le Chaux-de-Fonds so only took 4 Stops. Many places to visit but this museum has the most famous automaton in the world- ‘the writer’ worth a visit just the see this!

Really fun and interactive museum. Easy to get to by bus. Manageable size with kids and perfect for a half day visit.

This museum is extremely well organized. It often has brilliant special exhibitions in addition to more tradition displays of local animals. The place welcomes kids and families. Some exhibitions include quite innovative themes.

I love this museum. The exhibitions are always of an excellent quality and the way things are staged is really great. There is always great things for children too.

Very nice especially for kids who can interact with some exhibits but in French or German. So nicely presented local wildlife. Well worth a visit and close to the town centre.
