I always prefer a visit to the smaller and more hidden museums in my town, and one of those are Spårvägsmuseet (Stockholm Transport Museum). This small enough museum has historical Swedish transportation vehicles, and although it may not sound that attractive, I’m really fond of the place.
The museum opened for the public in 1944 and has been changing locations over time. In the last two decades it’s been located in a quiet area of Södermalm, and what’s new today is the toy museum that’s an additional feature of the museum’s selection.
One thing I’ve always loved about coming to Spårvägsmuseet is the timelessness you encounter. I always get the impression that time is moving in here than in the world outside. And it’s not only the objects that create that feeling; rather, it’s the atmosphere.
It’s usually not teeming with people in here, although you should avoid holidays. The entrance fee is also cheap compared to other museums in Stockholm, and students pay half price.
