“Dissapointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We were looking forward to learn something about the Rheatian part of Switzerland, but were dissapointed. Almost everything is in German, there are translated books but there is a lot of text to read on.

Practically we learned nothing new, fortunatelly the entrance was in Swiss pass else it would be a waste of money

“Good, but difficult if you don't speak German”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

It was snowing outside, and the museum was a warm dry haven. The lady on reception did not speak English, but she gave us the English guidebooks, so that was OK. Some history is universal (Roman occupation, sitting in the stocks, farm implements etc) but we struggled with not knowing Swiss history.
We were absolutely fascinated by the black and white films of winter sports in the 1920s 30s and 40s.
We paid to go in (8 Swiss francs each, I think) but I wonder if you could get a reduction with a Swiss Pass rail card?
