Kolkata was the first city of India where tram service was introduced. Even now it is running a very limited service. But this Museum will bring all memories of yester year snacks. Worth visiting. Governor Amolak Rattan Kohli

In some places you will find this vehicle, which are still in kolkata and also with any pollution. If you visit the museum you will find that tram was also pulled by the horse but with times it is now running with the electricity nowadays.
