This museum is laid out in an unusual way. The items and information here is all local. We were fascinated by the history of one of the families. We were also very touched by the information concerning the avalanche that happened in 1999.

Visited on a rainy day. Entry was free with our Silvretta card. Didn't quite get the exhibition but maybe because I can't read German and there was many exhibits translated in English. The short film with English sub-titles about the avalanche that hit Galtur in 1999 was very interesting & a room covered in mirrors (walls, ceiling & floor) was... More

Lots of mirrors make walking around this museum feel slightly strange. The cinema detailing the devastating avalanche of 1996 is very interesting and worth a visit for this alone to appreciate the togetherness of Galtur inhabitants.

Came across this museum on our last day as we were waiting for the bus transfer. Go up to the first floor to the café and then up again using the outside steps. Great panoramic view of Galtur. Friends had lunch in the café - all good.

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. Many... More

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.
