VeryVeryVeryVeryVeryVeryVery interesting museum with a moderate interactive collection of trams. For free!! You can take pictures with flash, imagine yourself as a tram driver, or a passenger of 1920's-60's, and have your own punched tram ticket.

Basically, there are maybe 9 trams and some signage here. It's a hop-on, hop-off stop, though, and there are some restaurants and stores here, so it can be worth a stop. Tram museum is free, so you can't complain about the price.

Поскольку полнноценного исторического музея в Хельсинки нет (национальный реконструируется и это не совсем то),…многочисленные фильмы этого музея стали экскурсом в прошлое города. Правда, кадры из видео и на стендах отнесены к разным временам, несостыковочка. Трамваев и правда мало, но много стендов и фильмов, можно растянуть...More

Despite being called a tram museum, it's more of an events venue with some trams around the edge of the hall. The examples there are are indeed well preserved and interesting enough, but it's just a shame that more hasn't been made of the museum....More
