URBAN PUBLIC TRANSPORT MUSEUM SZENTENDRE
The depot was built in 1914, during the electrification of the suburban railway line, but by the beginning of the 1990"s it became unsuitable for the storage and maintenance of trains with big passenger carrying capacity. The museum consisting of five exhibition rooms and two display halls opened on July 14, 1992.
The theme of the first room is the history of public transport in Budapest, presenting the legal predecessors of the company as well as the lines and vehicles operated by them.
In the second room the visitors can get information about the public transport of other cities (such as Debrecen, Miskolc, Szeged and Szombathely).
In the third room the technological relics of public transport infrastructure, track and catenary construction, maintenance and power supply are demonstrated.
The fourth room exhibits the tools of the original forge that was linked with the old covered depot in Szentendre.
The fifth room focuses on the history of bus and tram transport in Budapest. The visitors can find documents and photos, various tickets and vehicle spare parts here. In the hall and the yard of the museum tram and suburban railway cars, buses and trolley buses are standing.
It can be an exciting experience for the children that they can get on the exhibited vehicles.
