Mt Pilatus or Swiss Museum of Transport

We will be in Switzerland for 8 days, however will be in Lucerne for 2 days, rest 4 days in
Wengen and 2 days in Zermat and Chur respectively.
Little confusion between Mt.Pilatus or Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne for the first day, as we will be arriving to Lucerne by 11 am. Since we will be staying in Wengen for 4 days is it worth visiting Pilatus by skipping the Swiss Museum of Transport, any other suggestions ...

Pilatus if a clear day. You can go there by boat on the lake to alpenstad (sp). You can never get enough of nature's beauty!

That's a tough one.

I'm not a museum person, but I LOVED the Swiss Transport Museum. We spent hours there.

If it makes any difference, the train to Pilatus operates from May to Nov and if it's like the rest of Switzerland, the fare won't be cheap. What mountains do you plan on visiting while in Wengen? This might help sway your opinion - plenty of mountain excursions in Wengen and Zermatt, but no transportation museums there.

Or, you could wait until the day and see what the weather has in store. If it's not a clear day, Pilatus will be a bust.

Hotel televisons have a live feed to several mountain excursions, as well as the ticket counters themselves.

If you haven't been up any mountains and the weather is nice choose Pilatus. I thought the transport museum was similar to science and discovery museums in the states and maybe was geared a little more to children. However, the train section was very good and is a nice overview of trains and Swiss history, its easy to spend a lot of time in the transport museum without being bored especially if you are a guy or a kid.
