In your case, a Swiss Pass would be more economical than a Eurail Pass in Switzerland: it includes free traveling in the Glacier Express, a discount on the Swiss Transport Museum, free traveling for your son, free city transport and free traveling in more trains in the Bernese Oberland. I would recommend a 3-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass and use the free travel days on September 22, 23, 26. You would still get discounts on the days you don't travel or only do limited traveling: September 24 and 25. Of course you could take a 4-day pass as well, depending on your further plans, if any.
In addition you can use the Eurail France-Germany Pass for the other two countries.
You can get everything you need from one website: the Swiss Saver Flexi Pass from this page
, the Eurail France-Germany Pass from this page
and the Glacier Express (and other) reservations from this page
. Tip for the seat reservations: if it can't find any trains to book, then try a longer trip. For example: if Chur to Brig doesn't deliver results, the try Chur to Zermatt. It's just seat reservations, so price wise it doesn't matter.
I don't know about the museums in Germany, but it doesn't sound realistic do to such a long trip plus two museums in one day. I would suggest to slow down and indeed book an extra night. Traveling times are in the timetable
You may have already seen it, but good hotels for train travelers in Interlaken can be found here
By the way, which model railway are you referring to?
