This museum was completely fascinating. The layout had something for every age group and the historical aspects were really interesting. The film footage and photographs gave an insight into Vienna across the years, and for those of us with weak German, most of the exhibits and context was explained in English too. The only thing that I would say is... More

I visited on a Sunday morning when is was quite quiet. This is a well structured look at public transport in Vienna. It concentrates mostly on the Trams so any bus lover might be a bit disappointed. However I love trams so thought it was great. Some interactive elements of the young of heart. The museum is a short walk... More

A quite interesting museum, with a good collection of Straßebahnen covering all the vehicle's history since the horse drawn wagons of the 19th century till the modern day. Expo also contains a few busses, the history arround them is very well explained and also an U-Bahn car and an U-Bahn sim in which one can drive on the U1 red... More

Was amazed by the collection of transport vehicles at this museum. Apart from lots of trams (s-bahn), there were subway trains and buses - including the articulated bus (gelenkbus) which fell from the Reichsbrücke bridge into the Danube in 1976. A really wonderful collection which would take a few hours to see everything in detail and well worth the visit.... More

To see the trams from my childhood is always interesting, but that was all this museum had to offer. You dont get any exciting moments, even in the U bahn simulator. It is ok forbmaking time pass, nothing more. Just an ordinary place, compared to the rail museum in Odense in Denmark, this was booring, sorry.

It took us a while to find, as it is out of the centre of Vienna, and not marked on our maps as it is new. However, it is an interesting way of whiling away a wet morning. Most of the exhibits are trams, although also some motor buses. Not everything is captioned in English, but many things were and... More

This is not a general transport museum, it is dedicated to the development of Vienna’s transport system, particularly the trams. As such, it is an interesting place to visit. Many trams and a few buses are located in a renovated tram shed. The development of the transport system is described via a numbered walking route which wind's through trams, buses... More

From the origins of the horse draw street cars to the modern day electric vehicles and the U-Bahn, the museum covers all significant developments. There was a simulator for the S-Bahn which seemed very popular with the kids. It was a bit disappointing that we could not get into any of the tram cars, they say that they museum is... More

Newly opened in 2014 is the Remise Transport Museum of Vienna's public transport, or Remise Verkehrsmuseum der Wiener Linien. The building dates from around 1900 as was an operational tram depot up until 1990. Trams naturally form the bulk of the exhibits from horse drawn ones up to newer electric trams, but there are a few buses and a metro... More
