Barrier-Free Access to Prague Metro Stations

Prague metro is among the deepest underground systems in the world, especially on lines A and B in the city centre (and you can see tourists taking pictures on the long escalators). The central sections of all three Prague metro lines were built in the 1970’s and 1980’s, in the time when barrier free access to public transport facilities was not considered as important as it is today. Barrier-free access to some of the more important metro stations was added during reconstructions in recent years (newly built stations at the ends of metro lines generally have barrier free access).

Muzeum Metro Station Barrier Free Access

One of such cases is Muzeum Metro Station, the interchange of lines A and C. While the metro line C is not deep under the surface, Muzeum line A station is among the deepest in Prague and for disabled people, mothers, or people with bigger luggage it used to be impossible to access the station through the long escalators. This elevator was added a few years ago. It is situated between National Museum building and Vinohradska Street (on the left side of the museum when looking from Wenceslas Square).

Trams at Muzeum Station

Though Muzeum Station is one of the busiest metro hubs in Prague, it is not that important for tram traffic. At present, there is ony one tram line serving Muzeum Station, tram number 11, which connects Wenceslas Square with eastern parts of Prague including Vinohrady, Malesice, Vrsovice, and Sporilov.

Muzeum tram stop is located behind the National Museum building in Legerova Street, between the crossings of Legerova with Rimska and Vinohradska Street, respectively.
