Renovating Piccard's Submarine

The now famous mesoscaphe, an undersea vessel, will start it's restoration process in it's new home at the Swiss Transport Museum in Lucern. Jacques Piccard comes from a family of inventors as his father, Aguste Piccard, teamed up to build this submarine.

In the first years the vessel was in operation, over 33,000 people were taken to the bottom of Lake Geneva in 1964. The vessel was last seen at the Expo 02 in Murten. The transport museum has much more to offer. If you are visiting Lucern, this is definitely a great place to check out.
