Amazing installation

This is a Mecca for model train enthusiasts, with a huge number of static exhibits and a number of running layouts. Easy to reach, only about 100 yards from Mendrisio station. Careful,it is not open every day. There is an entrance fee. There is also a shop with Märklin rolling stock and a very small corner for drinks and snacks.

Unique attraction but something of a missed opportunity....

I have visited several times with my daughter, who has autism and loves to look at and to watch the trains. The collection is very impressive and some of the working models are very good but there is a certain coldness in the presentation and I am not entirely sure who the intended audience is. I think the whole experience could be made more interactive and more informative. Historical and environmental context is almost entirely missing from the displays.

Admission prices are high, in my opinion. Model train enthusiasts and train buffs will love this but most children may get bored within 15 mins.

An amazing collection of model trains of every type with many working models. Absolutely fascinating and well worth a visit. Nearest train station is Mendrisio and there's ample parking.
