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.

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.

The above title says it all after a bus ride to get to the slopes from Ischgl. In a whiteout when we should not have skied but when you have a made one mistake you just keep going.
