In 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, the Local Railways Museum (Lokalbahn-Museum) has been located since 1984. Here, the history of railways and trams is documented in words and images. And it's not only the Austrian part of Tyrol we are talking about, but all of Old Tyrol which included the Italian provinces of South Tyrol and "Welschtirol" - the Trentino. The exhibition takes up three rooms: the former waiting room, and the rooms of the station managers.
The second part of the exhibition, the Tyrolean Railways Museum (Tiroler MuseumsBahnen), shows then some of the most precious vehicles of the Tyrolean Local Railways, which are placed in the old of Stubaitalbahn coach house from 1904. The Association of the Tyrolean Museum Railways (TMB) restores the vehicles and maintains the museum. 27 vehicles are exhibited, among them from the Innsbruck Transport Services, the Stubaitalbahn, the Local Railway Innsbruck-Hall, and the only cog wheel locomotive still operable from the well-known South Tyrolean Renon Train.
The annually changing special exhibitions are dedicated to anniversaries of various rail routes and other topics. The still workable vehicles offer even special excursions ("Rent a tram") which leave unforgettable impressions on the passengers.
The museum stays open every Saturday from May to October, season start 2024 on May 4.
