  • We didn't know about this museum for a long time, but finally visited. It has some greatly maintained old trams, a display of old uniforms, pictures and tram maps and a small shop. A great visit as yo...  more »

  • The tram museum is really nice to see because it covers the entire Zurich tram history from the beginning. The museum is located in an refurbished old tram depot. There are many trams to see. One is allowed to enter any of them as well go under, permitting one carry a hard hat. Be careful when you wish to go as the venue isn't open daily. Great place to be with the kids for sure. Entry fee is reasonable.
  • Beautiful & small museum but perfect to go with kids. Quite cold in winter and warm in summer. Recommendable to bring your own food as there's nothing really available to eat or drink inside. But there's a Migros strategically located at the entrance.
  • It's a nice place for children, my 3 year old had so much fun there.
  • Great put together museum, if a little small. Lots of interactive stuff, good for kids. There's an amazing brio bahn and old photos of Zürich, a model tramway and a full size kids tram. Lots of old trams you can go inside and recently a kids treasure hunt with a prize. Nice shop, coffee making facilities. Only negative thing is the large number of toddlers and young kids running around and mistreating the equipment every time we go. You can open and close the tram doors if you raise the footplate, please don't let your kids do this, especially when there are people inside. This is not a cut price trampolino but a museum. Kids need to be supervised and parents shouldn't look the other way when their kids are terrorising the other visitors. We have this problem every time we go but it's worth coming back as it's a good little museum. The people work work here must be Zen masters!
  • One of the best museums in Zürich for kids. However best with a guided tour (not very didactic.)
