Nice small museum with many old beautiful trams. The children, who were there seemed to have a great time. We, a young couple, thought it was quite alright. Before going there on a Sunday, please note, that you can only buy drinks there, so you might want to eat something before you go in. There is a Supermarket next door,... More

This was the favorite excursion for the four year old. He loves trams so to be able to freely roam them was a dream come true. We learned a lot and got to see a huge variety of different looking trams which for me is okay but for him was amazing

Zurich is a city where you would still spot few old and new trams that wade through the streets, Trams have their own charm and that would be multi fold when we visit the Tram Museum. At th Tram Museum we can experience our grandparents’ mobility on the Museum Line along the Bahnhofstrasse and Limmatquai to Burgwies, with rolling stock... More

It is a Zurich tram museum. only for trams in Zurich city and the lines, and how it's began, it's better for train lovers, and good for children. because of the option to enter the trams.

The museum features a collection of the trams which were used in Zurich, a wonderful collection of old pictures of the town and other tram-related objects. The museum is quite small and it is definitely not on the "must do in Zurich" list, so don't expect too much! But I think is a must if you live in Zurich! :)

Okay we have the London Transport Museum in London where you can drive a tube train in a virtual world, but I remember the transport museum in Clapham and it was not so different. This museum has horse drawn trams and trams through history, trams are the lifeblood of Zurich and here you can seen their development and meet people... More

We visited the museum on our last day in Switzerland before catching our flight. The museum itself is rather small, based in what used to be the Tram depot for the surrounding area. Admission was CHF10 per adult, a little steep for what the museum was. The teams were very interesting to look around and were in pristine condition. There... More

I live in Zurich and have gone to this place a number of times when the weather was bad on a Sunday and we didn't know what to do with the energy of our young kids. This is a great place for children to run around and climb on old trams, with the place being small enough for the parents... More

Although the descriptions are all in German, it is easy to make sense of this small museum packed with trams. The curator is full of information and you can go on almost every tram - many of which are still in use. A good place to take children in bad weather.
