Many visitors of this website love public transportations around the world. Many of you also love Museums. On the I Love Old Trams, Lea Lawsa posted this map showing Tramway Museums around the world.
Just zoom into the country you want to check out as when you use the regular Google Maps feature to find places. My favorite one is located in Porto, Portugal. I love it so much since you can travel by old trams in the city center. Porto got a museum and also rolling trams on its streets.
Tramway Museums makes You Stuck for a Few Hours
Make sure you bring with you lots of patience and interest when visiting them. Especially if you bring minors with you.
The museums usually got lots of text to read, and vehicles to see and try out. There are multimedia presentations and guides at specific times too.
Another one that I’ve seen and visited is Sporveismuseet here in Oslo, Norway. It is located near Majorstuen station. In this public transportation museum, you will see all of the trams, metro, and buses that have been used in the city. You can also purchase books and more. It is a huge museum, so make sure to use 2-3 hours in it.
I’ve also seen the one in Brussels when taking the tramway there but I never visited it because it was closed. Next time I am going to Brussels for french fries and chocolate. I will for sure visit it.

A nice tip for everyone visiting tramway museums is to check their websites. In that way, you will know when they are open as it can vary during the year a lot. Most of them are open during weekends and not during the weeks. So, do check this out.
