I think the combination of a Swiss Half Fare Card and Swiss Museum Pass might indeed be a good idea in your case. Note that the Swiss Museum Pass costs CHF 166 so you will have to visit quite some museums to make it worth it. The Swiss Travel Pass includes the Swiss Museum Pass. The Swiss Half Fare Card will most likely save you money as a few cable car or train trips are typically enough to break even. Doing the math as explained here is the only way to know for sure.
You can buy train passes in Switzerland but it's more convenient to buy online. You can print your pass at home so it's ready to use and you can skip the queue at the airport train station (it may only take 5 minutes but it can also be 30 minutes of waiting time). Also, if the pass is delivered through e-mail you'll have a backup in case you lose it. There is no backup for a local purchase. And finally, if there is a promotion, it is typically only offered online. You can check the Promotion tabs of our pass pages for current offers. The Price tabs show purchase options.
The Swiss Railways webshop can be found through www.swissrailways.com/ en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the pass within 1-3 business days (no delivery fees), so you can print it at home.
Does this help you out?
