One of our trips out this week fitted in perfectly with Tara’s Gallery theme for the week: planes, trains and automobiles. I would like to be able to say that we took a taxi to the station, a train to the airport and hopped on a plane to somewhere tropical, sunny and exotic. Unfortunately, Little O, Baby E and I just hopped on a bus and crossed a small amount of water to go to the Stockholm Transport Museum (Spårvägsmuseet) on Södermalm.
We ended up staying more than four hours as Little O just loved the place. So much so that I went directly to the entrance desk afterwards and bought an annual ticket as I suspect that we’ll be making more visits there, especially on days when the weather is a little iffy.
The place is great: it has buses, trams and trains from the last 19th century right up to a replica of the tram put into service in the city in 2010 and you can climb onboard around half of them. They also have some different interactive bits and pieces (pretend to drive a bus or train, dress up as a conductor etc) and Little O’s favourite part, a large model train set to play on. Plus, for 10kr you can take a ride on the mini train that goes around the museum.
I definitely think we’ll be going back!
