Graz was the last stop of the tramway line in Austria before World War I. From here it was built up to the city of Vienna and later to the capital city of Austria. From here it was then moved on to the railway stations of Salzburg, Linz, Prague and Vienna. Over the years, the tramways have been taken over by cars but today they are very different to the old tramways.
Today, the Museum Graz is housed in a historic part of the city, in a building that was once used for the tramway. The museum was created in 2020 by the city council in order to provide visitors with a look at the tramway from the outside. Visitors are able to climb into the roof of this building and experience the history of rail transport in Graz and Austria in general.
Inside, the walls are covered in graffiti from when the old tramway was first built. The exhibits are divided into various sections, each with an interesting story about the tramways and the history behind them.
