Museum of Electrical Transportation

A former streetcar depot, designed by the architect Alexander Lamagin in Art Nouveau style and built in 1906-1908 on Vasilievsky Island, is now the Museum of Electrical Transportation. It has six models of antique trolleybuses and twenty models of old streetcars. Enthusiasts from all over the country bring old carriages, hole punchers, сash registers, spare parts, posters, booklets, blueprints and route maps. Going from one streetcar to the next, touching the little details and trying the seat, the visitors have a chance to see the development of Russian design and witness the story of technological progress. The majority of exhibits are still operational, which means that after the tour, you can take a small ride in an old streetcar.
