About the museum

The “Localbahnmuseum” can be found at the former Stubaitalbahn station’s restaurant. Spanning over two floors, an overview about the 25 shut down and still operated local railway nets of the Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino Euroregion can be found in three showrooms. Besides pictures, descriptions, and documents, the exhibition presents many different historic objects of Tyrolian railway staff’s daily routine. The exhibition is complemented by models of historic railway cars which are gone or – in some cases – were reconstructed by today.

Our collection of railway and tramway cars can be found in the museum’s depot next to the Localbahnmuseum. Cars originating in the 19th and 20th century are displayed on three tracks in the depot and can be entered and seen also from the inside. Furthermore, the railway cars can be viewed from the arcades underneath the depot’s roof. Further historic railway objects can be studied there as well.

Our volunteers at the depot and the museum can be asked to guide you through the rooms and cars and tell you the history of them. Feel free to ask them questions anytime.

The nostalgic museum shuttle train

No railway museum would be complete without the possibility to experience the charm of travelling like in old times. To offer our guests an easy way to reach our museum, we operate a museum shuttle train with nostalgic railway and tramway cars, departing from and returning to the city centre. Guests of the museum can embark the shuttle train at any station listed below and take the next shuttle after the visit to bring them back to the centre. The shuttle train is generally in service on opening days of the museum.

The timetable of the shuttle service is not binding. The operating hours can be seen below. We apologize that we are not able to serve other stations than the ones listed below for operational reasons. There is no obligation or explicit right for transportation on our shuttle service. The terms of transportation of the Tiroler MuseumsBahnen apply.

How to get to the museum

The Tiroler MuseumsBahnen’s Localbahnmuseum is located at the former Stubaitalbahnhof, at Pater-Reinisch-Weg 4, 6020 Innsbruck, AT. Next to the museum you find the Wiltener Basilika, Stift Wilten, Bergisel, and the main depot of Innsbruck’s transportation company “Innsbrucker Verkehrsbetriebe und Stubaitalbahn GmbH”.

From the city centre, the museum can be easily reached by tramway line No. 1 or railway line “STB”, both leaving at the stop “Stubaitalbahnhof”, or by the bus line No. 590, leaving at the stop “Innsbruck Basilika Wilten”.

The museum can be reached on foot in about 20 minutes from the main station or the city centre, respectively. Unfortunately, there is no dedicated parking space for museum visitors, but there are some public parking spaces in the surroundings of the museum.
