  • The gallery contains a magnificent collection of antiques and modern "G" scale or LGB and H0. There are also pieces in TT, N and Z, but to an extent and minor importance. Some dioramas in H0 are preserved and there are three small plastic models in H0, N and Z realized directly by MAERKLIN (TRIX) for the gallery. If you find a nice plastic for visit is not the place. There is so much psazio vacuum that could be filled with a beautiful model, but the proprietor (deceased) and the current direction, prefer not to invest in that direction. Basically it's a great showcase/Museum locomotives and rolling stock. The visit is recommended to fans, while it might be disappointing to the kids.

  • If you like model trains ... well! Though I was expecting something more: more plastic, movement, history of railway modeling ... Looks more like a large shop with a beautiful display that a museum ... Too bad!

  • Fantastic Museum, for those who enjoy hobbies and not, visited with a friend thanks again to the old business of collecting the stamps at a gas station Piccadilly at customs di Brusata. Here we wowed for a week:-)

  • This place is a wonderful gem, especially if you have an interest in trains. Multiple floors of exhibition with good parking and in a quiet town.
  • Interesting. Collection a bit too static. I would have preferred some Plastique richer.

  • Museum not very big, but for fans who have long things to "get lost".  Pretty neat, full of static models (different scales).  Well as some model ships (of various ages) and by car.  Various models in motion, with rich environments and catered for.  Maybe I was expecting some more plastic working.  Bar service, small but stocked shop, vending machine stamps, dressing, video.  Courteous staff.  Adult ticket (well, maybe a little out of proportion) 12 Francs (accept and even Eu. cash).  Has a very small internal parking (Frank), but there is the municipal car park (which holidays costs only 2 Francs for all the g.). Two steps away from the train station. in Mendrisio
