Stockholm Transport Museum (Spårvägsmuseet)

 

Introduction

If you're looking for something indoors to entertain younger children then this is a great attraction for any child interested in trains or transport in general. It's also one of the cheaper Stockholm attractions with adults costing 40 SEK, children over 7 and seniors 20 SEK and children under 7 free. Two hours should be sufficient for most visits.

Getting there

The museum is located towards the eastern side of Sodermalm. One of the quickest ways there is to catch the t-bana (underground rail system) to Slussen (Red and Green lines) and then take the regular number 2 blue bus towards Sofia (about a 5 minute journey).

The museum

The museum is a large open plan space containing dozens of trams, trains, buses and old horse drawn public transport vehicles. On many of the vehicles it's possible to board then and explore with a few providing access to the drivers cab. In a couple of cases you can pretend to drive the train with a video playing of a real journey on the SL network. There's a small train for very small kids to ride on through the museum (small additional charge) and a large table top Brio wooden railway set to play with next to the small cafe (hot and cold drinks, sandwiches and cold salads).
