Hi sanron, and welcome to MySwissAlps!
The Swiss Travel Pass gives you much better coverage in Switzerland than a Eurail Pass does.
You can download maps showing what is covered by each pass.
As explained in the legend on the maps, red lines are trains, yellow lines are buses, black lines are cable cars, white lines are boats. Solid lines are free, dotted lines are discounted. Discounts are mostly 50%, but only 25% for transport where you see the number "1" inside circle near the dotted line. There are a few grey lines on the maps as well, which are different for each pass. These indicate transport that is not covered by the pass. Dashed red lines on the map are railway tunnels, and are on routes that are free either Pass.
I am assuming you are travelling in 2018, so the following maps apply to travel in 2018 (which is different in some cases from what applies in 2017).

Only Swiss Travel Passes (continuous or flex) provide free entry to museums.
