Basics
Address: KVB-Museum, Gemarkenstraße 173, 51069 Köln
Web: http://www.hsk-koeln.de
Opening times: Second Sunday in month, Mar-Dec, 1100-1700
Admission price: 1.5 euro, children 1 euro

Visit date: March 2016

Access by public transport: The museum is adjacent to the railway-style tramway terminus at Thielenbruch, served by Koeln tram routes 3 and 18.

Collection: Thirteen motor tram cars, three trailers, three freight vehicles, two works motor cars, one replica horse tram car. The Koeln heritage tram stock appears to have been particularly badly damaged during World War Two, with only one motor-motor-trailer set from one of the suburban companies surviving from before 1939. The earliest era of tramways in Koeln is represented by an ex-Bonn car of similar vintage and design, with a false Koeln identity.

Presentation: All labelling and historical discussion is in German-only, but interesting if you can read some of the language. Not one to make a special trip to, but worth visiting if you are in the area.
