Tyrolean Museum Railways - Local Railways Museum

In three rooms of the old Stubaitalbahn station in Innsbruck, the history of the Tyrolean local railways and trams is documented.

In the old Stubaitalbahn station in the district of Wilten, at the foot of the Bergisel in Innsbruck, a particular excursion destination is located, the Local Railways Museum, opened in 1984. Here the history of railways and trams from South Tyrol, North Tyrol, East Tyrol and Trentino is documented in words and images. The exhibition takes up three rooms: the former waiting room and the rooms of the station managers.

The second part of the exhibition shows some of the most precious vehicles of the Tyrolean Local Railways, which are placed in the old coach house of the Stubaitalbahn railway from 1904. The Association of the Tyrolean Museum Railways (Tiroler MuseumsBahnen) restores the vehicles and maintains the museum. 27 vehicles are exhibited, among them vehicles from the Innsbruck mountain railway, the Innsbruck transport services, the Stubaitalbahn, the local railway Innsbruck - Hall in Tirol and the only cog wheel locomotive still operable from the well-known South Tyrolean “Rittner Bahn” on the Renon high plateau.

The annually changing special exhibitions are dedicated to anniversaries of various rail routes and other topics. In 2000, the 100 years of the Innsbruck mountain railway were celebrated, and in 2004 the 100 years of the Stubaitalbahn. The still workable vehicles offer even special excursions (”Rent a tram”) which leave unforgettable impressions on the passengers!
