Whether you are 5 year old or 85, this place will amaze you :) Especially when the night falls on the model railway... Sooo many details you could spend 10 hours in it and still discover new things!

It’s an amazing museum, one of its kind! Train aficionados will find all kinds of models in some incredible large displays. Kids & grownups will find something to enjoy. Prices are quite expensive, even for the Swiss standards, though not sure if you’ll find it...More

A fantastic display of train modelling in the 21st century! For a train modeller of 50 years one could see so much how the hobby has evolved. Huge display on 3 levels with a short film at the start. Then a self guided visit over...More

I went there with my 2 years old and it was very interesting. First a video explaining how all the museum was made and then you can profit of the miniature trains. Really fun to watch with so much great details.

This is a model train set - on a magnificent scale. Even if you don't like trains (most people in the museum were men) you have to be impressed with the scale and attention to detail on this model. No information in English.
