On many Sundays in a month, it is possible to ride for free with a veteran tram from 1913 through the city’s streets of Oslo again. The tours is usually free and runs between Stortorvet and Majorstuen. The last trip went even goes thru Grunnerløkka and Torshov also sometimes. Sporveismuseet is arranging the trips, but they also have their own museum that is open on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays during the week! Check out our video below on how it is on historical tram days in Oslo etc.
Welcome aboard an historic tram ride! – Distrita TV was there
Taking a historic tram, does something to your heart for sure. They are older, but still they run as fast as the newest ones. Well, some of them at least. Many children loves to take them, because they have a totally different design. Most of the older trams also have a quite interesting design inside of the wagon too. In Oslo, many of the historic trams had seats on the sides etc. It makes the unknown social contact with the other people on the other seat pretty interesting.
Oslo have Museum trips often Every Year
If you love historical trams, then I suggest that you should take a trip to the Tram museum in Oslo which is located in Majorstuen. They are located in the old Tram depot. Here you will find lots of different trams that have been running on the streets of Oslo! But, that’s not all!
The museum also boasts of old metro wagons, old buses and many historical images and notes. This museum is really for everyone that is interested in trams. So, in the summertime. The museum have many historical tram trips around the city, where children and their parents can have a very nice experience together.
