The U-Bahn Museum has been located in the former Olympia-Stadion signal box since 1997. This electromechanical lever interlocking was the largest of its kind in Europe from its commissioning in 1931 until its closure in 1983. From here, 616 routes and 99 signals were monitored and controlled. Historical tickets serve as admission tickets, which are issued at an original underground ticket counter.

The more than 100-year history of the Berlin underground is documented with ticket machines, historical service clothing and underground network plans from 1936 onwards. An insight into the working world in the underground tunnels is provided by a train dispatcher's duty room from the 1950s and work tools from the railway master's offices. The collection focuses on technical equipment used in U-Bahn operations, all of which is still in working order, including signal box types, a historic clock station, master controllers from U-Bahn cars since 1901, train radios, a diagnostic computer for vehicle maintenance and a signal block from 1931.

The more than 30 underground cars restored by the AG Berliner U-Bahn e.V. - the oldest dates back to 1902 - cannot be exhibited yet due to lack of space. However, at least some of the old vehicles are used for special trips.
