Museu do Carro Eléctrico

Porto’s once extensive tram 
network has 
shrunk to three 
routes, 
maintained for 
the benefit of
tourists. But the 
Tram Museum, 
inaugurated in 
1992 in a former
 power station and
 recently
reopened after an 
overhaul, has more. It displays models that date back a century and a half, from a horse-drawn trolley first used in 1872 to a slick 1950 tram. There is a bonus for ticket-holders: free rides on city buses and trams for four hours from first validation.
