Basics:
Address: Historische Straßenbahnhof Leipzig-Möckern, Georg-Schumann-Straße 244, 04159 Leipzig
Web: http://www.strassenbahnmuseum.de/
Opening times: Third Sunday of month, May-Sep, 1000-1700
Admission price: €2 adult, €1 reduced (child under 14, registered disabled, Leipzig Card holder). Tram journeys additional.

Visit date: September 2015

Access by public transport: Local tram routes 10 and 11, bus 80. On open days historic trams also operate hourly from central Leipzig as route 29E.

Collection: Despite the limited opening hours this is a fairly large and well-kept collection with 19 electric motor tramcars (some to be restored), 14 trailer cars (some to be restored), one horse tramcar, a trolleybus (under restoration), and several service and road vehicles. Particularly notable or interesting vehicles include a motorised mobile shop tramcar, now used as the museum shop, "Villa Helga", a trailer preserved in its state as recovered, when it was being used as a bungalow, Grosse Leipziger Strassenbahn 308 of 1896, claimed to be the second oldest tramcar in Europe in operable condition and a survivor of the first class in mainland Europe to be fitted with air brakes, and Leipziger Aussenbahn 20, a suburban tramcar with elaborate Jugendstil decoration, upholstered seats, and a heating stove complete with chimney protruding through the roof.

Presentation: On open days various cars are used intermittently for route 29E and tours, with the others static in the depot. They are quite close together, but easy to examine and board. Most vehicles are labelled, but in German only. There are other technical and historical displays. Overall, strongly recommended if you are in Leipzig when it is open.
