The Vienna Tram Museum
The Viennese Tramway Museum was established in 1986 and hosts a comprehensive collection of vehicles of the tramway-, light rail- and bus operation which are of historical and technical importance.
Next to original vehicles we offer an extensive technical documentation like pictures, drawings and documents that are permanently edited for presentation.
The vehicles displayed are a treat for all visitors - non-professionals or specialists:
- A horse tram built in 1868
- A steam train set built in 1885/86
- As well as the whole range of electronically operated tramway- & light rail carriages for passenger transportation as well as technical support from 1901 to 1969.
The bus collection consists of vehicles built in 1949 to 1978: motor busses, double decker busses and articulated busses.
The museum is hosted in the former depot “Erdberg” and consists of 4 halls on 7,500 m². The vehicles are displayed on 1,810m tracks.
The Museum is currently closed for construction. The museum is scheduled to open again in autumn 2014 and will welcome visitors year-round.
