The Tram Museum in Amsterdam (Electrische Museumtramlijn Amsterdam) is a unique opportunity to go back in time for a moment.
On the territory of the museum there are 60 trams from various European cities: Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, Groningen, Vienna, Prague, including the trams of Amsterdam. All exhibits were built between 1904 and 1960.
Most of this collection is currently out of service. In addition to the original models of this transport presented to the general public, the museum offers 2 tourist routes.
Historic tram routes
Traveling on a historic tram has two options:

After the marriage process, the newlyweds together with their guests can go on a little tram trip. The administration of the museum is ready to provide a special carriage equipped with musical equipment. The newlyweds will have unforgettable feelings and unusual photos as a keepsake.
- Walking Amsterdam: There is a possibility of renting for walking around the city. To do this, you must contact the museum staff in advance and indicate your wishes. The cost of such an event is from 525 euros per hour and depends on the routespecified by the client.
- A separate carriage along the historic route (Haarlemmermeerstation - Bovenkerk): it is possible to rent a separate carriage for your entire company. The car can be attached to an excursion or a separate tram with its own schedule.
On the territory of the station (stop Haarlemmermeerstation) there is a shop where everyone can buy unusual souvenirs - it can be a book or a T-shirt, a mini-model of a tram or a DVD, a postcard or key rings, but all the items have one thing in common: love for the tram.
