The Museum’s Transport Depot is repeating its popular September Sunday Open Days.

Visitors to the collection – housed in a former railway depot – will get a rare chance to see more than 50 vehicles from this unique collection covering 150 years of transport history. The highlights include bull-nosed buses, one of Berlin’s first electric trains, Erich Honecker’s Range Rover, historical lorries and classic cars.

Admission to see the historical collection is free of charge.

Spanning public transport, fire services and refuse collection, the collection includes 13 buses (including the typical bull-nosed double-deckers of the 1920s and 1930s and a streamlined Opel from 1938), 14 trams, underground and mass transit carriages, 20 lorries (including a Bergmann electric delivery van, a Ford gasifier and an Opel Blitz) and spectacular construction machines like the steamroller built by Berliner Maschinenbau AG vorm. L. Schwartzkopff in 1890.
The fascinating automobile collection includes Russian state limousines like the GAZ Chaika and SIL 114 and classic cars such as the Edsel Ranger of 1958, the Cadillac 62 Series de Ville and the NSU Ro 80.

Shuttle service
There will be a shuttle service with historic buses provided by AG Traditionsbus (low fare, tickets are valid for both directions) or with the historic museum train between the main museum building in Trebbiner Strasse and the depot. So it is easy to combine a visit to the museum with a visit to the transport open day – the ideal Sunday programme for the whole family.

Thank you
