Tram rides

Look at Amsterdam from a different perspective...
Experience vintage travel


In our museum trams it's all about experiencing the way our grandparents used to travel by real working trams, no static exhibits.

You can enjoy a vintage tramride on our beautiful tramline from Haarlemmermeerstation to Amstelveen-Bovenkerk, or on occasion through the streets of Amsterdam.

Operating days

You are welcome to join us for a ride!

We run tram services every Sunday from April through November, Easter Monday and Pentecost Monday included!

Start of each such day is 11.00 hrs from Haarlemmermeerstation. Last departure from Haarlemmermeerstation is at 17.00 hrs, last return ride departs from Amstelveen-Bovenkerk at 17.55 hrs.

Also, until the end of the season, we offer two rides from Haarlemmermeerstation into the city of Amsterdam, passing by e.g. Artis Zoo, Amstel River, Rembrandt square, etc.


Tickets can be bought from the conductor on the tram, as was normal in the old days. If you cannot pay in cash, you can pay for your tickets by card in the museum shop.

Getting into the historic trams can be a bit of challenge: because of the higher build, some climbing is necessary. If you use a wheelchair or a stroller/buggy, this may not fit through the doors, because these are narrower than what we are used to nowadays. By folding the wheelchair or stroller/buggy this often can be solved, but sometimes not even then. Please keep this in mind.


Throughout the year we organise various events, some for adults, some for children, some for all. Check our Events page to see if there's one that you would like to attend.

Tram hire

Throughout the year you can hire a tram for your party. You can choose to have your party on our own Museum tramway or on the city network.

Please make your enquiries timely.
