Bergen Technical Museum
Bergen Technical Museum is located in a street tramway depot hall in Møhlenpris, some 15 minutes by foot from the city centre. The museum is maintained by groups of volunteers, and features a Gutenberg type print shop, motor cars and commercial vehicles, domestic appliances, a section on telecommunications and a large model railway layout.
The main attraction is the tramway line to the city centre, which has been under construction for several years now. Currently the old tramway has an operating museum line of about 300 meters, taking museum guests for ride with the really old street car.
