The Remise is a museum about the history of public transport in Vienna, Austria. It is situated on the site of a former tram depot (“remise” means “depot” in German), which was built in 1901 in Vienna’s Erdberg district, and was still an operational tram station until 1990. It documents 150 years of public transport in Vienna via 14 different themed exhibits, highlighting everything between horse-drawn trams to the more modern underground network. It opened on September 13, 2004. The museum helps visitors understand the role of public transport in the development of the city and the everyday lives of people, and provides a behind-the-scenes look inside the operations of public transport; for example, visitors can experience the routes of the five subway lines as the driver sees them thanks to a multimedia subway simulator.
Visitors are also taken on a journey through time with historical vehicles on display such as a steam train, an old double-decker bus, and a city train carriage. A bus that plunged into the Danube following the collapse of the Reichsbrücke Bridge in 1976 is also exhibited.
The museum is open on Wednesdays from 9 am to 6 pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. Admission costs €6 per adult, €4 per teenager aged 15-18, and is free of charge for children under the age of 15. It can be reached by public transit via tram 18 (Schlachthausgasse stop), by underground metro 3 (Schlachthausgasse stop) and by buses 77A and 80A (Ludwig-
