Stockholm Transport Museum (Spårvägs Museet) is located at the end of the metro red line Ropsten. This is actually quite an old museum that was formerly housed in the old Söderdepån on Tegelviksgatan - SL bus garage. This facility was closed in 2017. Museum reopened in May 2022 in the new location of the former gas plant building, which is quite impressive in its size (3700 sq m!).
A small note on how to get there: there are directions to the museum inside the Ropsten metro stop. Once you are out of the metro, you can turn left, there is a small path on the right side of the football fields and through the school premises. Once you go down the stairs after school, the museum will be on your left. There are stairs on this path, however, those have rails for strollers.
Stockholm Transport Museum is dedicated to the history of public transportation, be it by water, rails, or road, in the Stockholm region.
The Museum is highly interactive and if you or your child(-ren) like trains and buses - this is the place to be! There are bus/train riding simulators, playing areas, dress-up areas, a reading corner, and even a mini train on the ground floor. Please note that every young visitor gets one ticket to ride this train upon purchasing the entrance tickets. If the parent wants to ride the train as well (or the child wants to have another ride) - an extra ticket has to be purchased.
The best way is to go from the 3rd floor down to the Ground floor. In this way, visitors can discover the history of the common transportation in the Stockholm area. Almost all video/audio resources in this museum are available in both Swedish and English.
The museum has both an elevator and stairs (as well as a ramp where it is necessary). It has a cafe (ground floor) and a picnic area (1st floor). Both have high chairs. The picnic area has a microwave. There are 2 changing tables (3rd floor and ground floor in the cafe area). Lockers are free. Visitors can and are recommended to park their strollers in the dedicated area. It is also possible to borrow strollers (2 pcs) and baby carriers for the duration of the visit.
