It is 11 o'clock. The station master announces the train pulling into the station, This is where a wonderful tale becomes reality thanks so the perseverance of its conceptor, Marc Antiglio. An imaginary network of miniature railways will take you a journey through Switzerland as is it were real. Built on 3 levels, on a scale of 1:87, 2045 metres of track are layed.

Whether you are 5 year old or 85, this place will amaze you :) Especially when the night falls on the model railway... Sooo many details you could spend 10 hours in it and still discover new things!

It’s an amazing museum, one of its kind! Train aficionados will find all kinds of models in some incredible large displays. Kids & grownups will find something to enjoy. Prices are quite expensive, even for the Swiss standards, though not sure if you’ll find it...More

A fantastic display of train modelling in the 21st century! For a train modeller of 50 years one could see so much how the hobby has evolved. Huge display on 3 levels with a short film at the start. Then a self guided visit over...More

I went there with my 2 years old and it was very interesting. First a video explaining how all the museum was made and then you can profit of the miniature trains. Really fun to watch with so much great details.

I visited the place with a bunch of kids, not sure who was the youngest, them or me? Marvel to see, dreams of when trains still made noises.

Huge model train set, took 17 years to build. The visit though starts with a 15 minutes movie about how and why the set was built. Pretty boring for little ones who just want to see the trains. And also repetitive if you go there...More

Kaeserberg Museum of Trains is something you probably won't see elsewhere. It's a mini train model on a grand scale with towns, mountains, tunnels, cars, and more. The trains are run by a special system resembling a real train network operation, there is "day" and...More

This is a model train set - on a magnificent scale. Even if you don't like trains (most people in the museum were men) you have to be impressed with the scale and attention to detail on this model. No information in English.
