The museum opened on land which belongs to Skjoldenæsholm Castle on 26 May 1978. It was established and is run entirely by unpaid volunteers in collaboration with the Danish Tram Historical Society.
The museum is founded on some of the remains of Sjællandske Midtbane, a railway that was closed in 1936 and went from Næstved to Frederikssund over Ringsted and Hvalsø.
The collection was founded in 1965. It consists mainly of rolling stock and related artifacts from Copenhagen, Aarhus and Odense, the three Danish cities which historically operated tram systems, but also include trams from a number of other countries.
In 2003 the museum took over a collection of historic trams and buses when a museum run by Movia(?), the local bus company in Copenhagen, closed. Several other collections have followed since.
