Renewed route

Starting June, the museumtram runs a renewed route through the city, which enables the passengers to enjoy the pictoresque Amsterdam even more. After the stop at Artis Zoo, the route goes by the Wertheimpark, via Waterlooplein and the Blauwbrug across the Amstel river, and then the tram passes by Rembrandtplein and follows the cosy Utrechtsestraat to Frederiksplein. There it resumes the old route in order to reach Haarlemmermeerstation via Leidseplein and Willemsparkweg/Koninginneweg. (28-05-2018)

Sign the petition and save our museum tramline

Perhaps you are aware that our tram depot will have to make room for new housing, according to Amsterdam city council plans. We are still in discussion about alternatives. To support us in our activities to keep the museum tramline open and save the vintage trams, we ask you to sign our online petition at https://museumtramlijn.petities.nl

Work in progress

The museumtramline is shortened during the 2018 season due to works carried out on the bike path next to our tramline. We currently terminate at IJsbaanpad, just beyond the Olympic Stadium. As an attractive addition, we run a tram service from Haarlemmermeerstation to Artis Zoo, in the city.

Historic trams crossing the city

This week, the association for arts & culture, history & architecture Ons Amsterdam organises a couple of promptly booked rides through Amsterdam with our museum trams. Of course the participants are extra lucky with the beautiful summer weather. And we have the opportunity to explain what we′re doing, talk about our collection and the tramway network. On top of that, all kinds of particulars are given about the streets, buildings and surroundings that the trams pass by. (18-04-2018)

New housing plans not convenient for Museum tramway

On March 15, the Amsterdam city council approved altered plans for the area where our museum has its depot and workshop. The new plan aims to clear the area to make room for new housing. Storage and restauration of our museum trams in these plans are quite difficult to actualize. Starting at the end of this year, when all procedures should be passed, the area is expected to be open for clearing. We will report later when more news becomes available. (16-03-2018)

Progress on NBM 55

Work on the interior has been completed except for the application of the handbrake handles. This replica of a Nederlandse Buurtspoorweg Maatschappij trailer car will possibly enter service in 2018. (13-05-2018)
