We stopped in bergun just to go to this museum, and we were pretty disappointed. Our ten year old son was excited to see the model train of the Albula Line, but it was not running and not easy to explore. Most of the displays...More

In front of the museum stands a locomotive with workers car. This track is connected with the railway. You can watch the whole museum in about an hour. Opening times start at 10 am daily.

There is plenty to see and read in this museum that tells you the history of the railway and Graubunden. Did you know that cars were banned in this entire area for several years?

Spent a lovely couple of hours here and only left as I had a train to catch. The entry floor exhibits are decent although the actual model railway wasn't running when I was there. Still, the interactive exhibits and video exerts upstairs more than balanced...More
