Museum of Transportation

On Thursday I went with Iva and Filip for a walk. I wanted to show Iva the old abandoned railway in Líšeň. I was very surprised when I found out that the old railway station was open, including the depository of tramways owned by the Brno Technical Museum.

They had tramways from all eras since 1900. There was even more to see there, for example MiG-21 and L-29 airplanes, some military vehicles, two or three fire brigade trucks, a model railway, etc. The most interesting thing was the 1:13 scaled model of a Škoda 22Tr trolleybus. Overall, I think I can recommend the museum, but they are just a depository, not a regular museum, so they do not have regular opening days.

Hmm, interesting. And where exactly is it, please? (GPS coordinates or street name or something like this). And how do you get in? Did you ask gatekeeper or how?

Look up the bus stop "Muzeum dopravy" at (it is in Holzova street in Líšeň).
