The Tram Depot transformed  into a museum...

one of the largest collections of historical vehicles in europe!

This large collection is in a listed tram depot building in Erdberg, Vienna and tells of a 150-year history of public transport in Vienna, and we have redesigned the permanent exhibition for an area of over 6600m².

Large next to small: A special challenge!

Since small objects are placed next to large vehicles that have to be moved on the rails from time to time, we developed 14 mobile modules in which the different epochs and themes are illustrated in different ways. All modules can be moved around if necessary in order to access and move vehicles. One of the halls can even be used as a gigantic event area!

For the entrance hall, including the cash desk and museum shop, an existing gritting sand store was opened and converted.
