This is a good museum and well worth taking time to visit. There is a good cinema presentation on Galtur including information on the avalanche. The infinity mirror room is fascinating and the views from the roof show the avalanche protection walls and views of the town. There is a nice café too.

It was a nice educational trip about the city of Galtur. 8 Euros per adult or 7 Euros if you're staying in one of the valley cities. There were many historical exhibitions about Galtur, its' beginnings, famous people from there or visiting the city and some history that was more up to date. The mirror room was exceptionally fun.

Interesting architecture and interior, but totally disappointing if you don't speak German - no translation in English or any other language. Just a few exhibits with explanation in German only and a film which might have been worth seeing, if only someone had made a small effort to add subtitles. Not very polite reaction from the receptionist when we complained... More

Testimonials about the beauty of the mountain, but also about people's work to stem nature. Here I saw something about man's struggle against avalanches, because there were many victims Galtür over time.

This building was a sobering reminder of a terrible catastrophe. Also my children really enjoyed seeing the exhibits, very informative. Definitely a "must see" when visiting Galtur.

Great museum with creative displays. Especially liked the section with knitted landscape. BUT we have very little knowledge of German, so some of the exhibits were wasted on us.

We went to the exhibition on a cold wet afternoon. There is a fee but we got a reduction with our Silvretta passes. The exhibition comprises a large wooden tunnel which... More
