This museum is a wonderful hands-on experience for young and old alike, featuring a wide selection of historic trams and buses, several of which you can even climb into and explore. The oldest is a horse-drawn tram that dates back to 1886. Located in an historic Prague tram depot built in 1909, the facility was used up until 1992. The museum provides a delightful window into Prague’s past. A number of unusual items are for sale by the ticket booth; my favorite find is a puzzle of the Prague metro system.

 

You can even take “Nostalgic Tram Line No. 91”, which features vintage trams dating back to 1875. This special tramline is in operation from April through November on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 12:00 to around 17:35. The cost is 35 CZK per ride.
