Even though it is the youngest museum in Szczecin, the Museum of Technology and Transport in Szczecin is one of the largest technology museums in Poland. It was established on the First of January 2006, and is located in Niebuszewo district, in a tram depot at Niemierzyńska St., which is classified as a national monument. At some point, apart from the space for depositing trams, the depot comprised a control room, a conductors’ room, office rooms and company apartments in the loft.
The Museum of Technology and Transport deals mainly with collecting trams, buses, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, electronics, telecommunication devices, home appliances and many more items. The most remarkable acquisition of the Museum is the 100-piece collection of Leszek Liszewski, dedicated mainly to the Polish automotive industry. Since it began to operate, the Museum has been consistently expanding its collections. Initially, these were rather scarce, comprising mainly some several dozen pieces of electric devices used for tram traction. By the end of 2008, the Museum’s collection featured as much as nearly 750 exhibits.
The collection of Museum of Technology and Transport features:
c) commercial vehicles,
d) passenger cars (produced both domestically and abroad),
f) atypical vehicles,
h) other single-track vehicles.
Other collections of the Museum of Technology and Transport feature: electric elements and devices used for tram traction and for the tram cars (insulators, relays, controllers, convertors, etc.), electronics and telecommunication devices (old computers, calculators, telephones), household appliances: TV sets, radio cassette recorders, coffee grinders, sewing machines, etc.
The Museum’s exhibition features motorcycles manufactured by Alba, a company that operated before World War II, Stoewer cars and Junaks, which were manufactured in the Szczecin Motorcycle Plant after the war. In addition, there are other Polish single-track vehicles: Osa motor scooters, Komar, Żak and Ryś mopeds, WSK, SHL and Sokół motorcycles. The car brands put on display in the Museum include: Syrena, Fiat 125p and 126p, Warszawa, Żuk, Nysa and Stara 25. The museum has also built a collection of prototypical Polish vehicles: Beskid, Smyk, Wszędołaz, LPT and Iskra.
