Opened in 1993 in a former tram depot in Prague-Střešovice, the Public Transport Museum is a two-fold exhibition, with featured displays covering the history of public transport in Prague as well as showcasing more than 45 historic vehicles. Exhibits date back to 1875, when horse-drawn trams were introduced into the city and include well-preserved, gleaming electric trams, fire engines, coaches and buses, all neatly lined up in rows. Many other exhibits, including models, advertising posters, photographs, route maps, travel tickets, old models and short, flickering films, higlight the development of Prague’s transport network over the last 150 years.
Combine a visit to the Public Transport Museum with a turn on the ‘nostalgic’ Tram Line No 91. A fleet of bright-red trams set out from the tram depot — built in 1909 and a city landmark in its own right — every Saturday and Sunday between March 25 and November 17 to do the rounds of Prague’s major sights, including the Castle and Wenceslas Square. Departures are on the hour; the trip takes 40 minutes and costs 35 CZK one-way.
Open Mar 25–Nov 17 Sat, Sun and public holidays 9am–5pm. Admission for adults is 35 CZK; children are 20 CZK. For transportation, take Metro Line A to Hradčanská.
