The National Technical Museum looks after the largest collection of the old rail vehicles in the Czech Republic. The most important part of the collection is housed in a former engine depot in Chomutov. Visitors can see about 100 rail vehicles of various types and gauges; from a hand car from 1850 and a steam engine produced in 1870 to a railroad snow plow from 1980. There are former Czechoslovak State Railways (Československé státní dráhy) and Kaiserlich-Königliche Staatsbahnen (KKStb) vehicles on display. Parlor, passenger and diesel cars, electric and diesel locomotives, old hand cars as well as vehicles not long ago still in operation by Czech Railways (České dráhy) are now ready for their preservation in the NTM collections.


NTM depositary is located next to the Czech Railways locomotive depot in Chomutov.

The access road is marked from the street Černovická next to the Globus shopping center (direction of Karlovy Vary).
