"Remise" Transport Museum

The site of the new Transport Museum was still an operational station for trams until 1990 and was built in 1900. Nowadays, it is home to a modern museum for the entire family. Many historic exhibits are displayed here, above all trams and buses. However, the museum focuses primarily on the diverse history of the exhibits and provides a glimpse behind the scenes of everyday public transport operations. At total of 14 different themed exhibits create an exciting journey through the history of public transport in Vienna: From the horse-drawn tramway of the imperial age to the opening of Vienna’s subway system in 1978.

A converted "Silberpfeil" set with glazed display windows provides a view of the vehicle technology. And a multimedia subway simulator makes it possible for visitors to experience the routes of the five subway lines as the driver sees them. Museum visitors can slip into the role of a ticket collector. All themed exhibits have interactive and multimedia contents that invite visitors to join in. The bus that plunged into the Danube following the collapse of the Reichsbrücke in 1976 is also exhibited in the Transport Museum.

The network of the Wiener Linien encompasses the five subway lines as well as 29 tram and 145 bus lines that ply daily on a route network of over 1,000 kilometers in length.
