The National Museum of Transport concerns the history of the technology and design of the implements of transportation and communication.

Here are displays of locomotives, railway cars, automobiles, streetcars, buses, trucks, horse drawn vehicles, and related items. Visitors may sit in a locomotive cab, board a double deck bus, or walk into a railway tunnel. Future exhibits will include communication, waterway, pipeline and flight devices.
