Launceston Tramway Museum

Launceston Tramway Museum is about a local Tasmanian community and the trams they used.

The Museum evolved out of a restoration society in the 1990s that restored Launceston's only surviving double bogie tram.

Located in the historic Inveresk Precinct, within walking distance of the CBD, the Museum features a workshop, a large modern display gallery and access to rail track running through the precinct.

You can recapture Launceston's tramway past with a ride on our restored tram.

Inside the museum, you can enjoy Launceston's oldest surviving movie footage and experience how the City changed with the introduction of the trams.

You may wish to view the ultimate DIY project, the rebuilding of Launceston's very first tram, or discover whatever happened to the trams when you encounter one that had become a chook house.

The Museum is adjacent to good parking, cafes and the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery. Open with tram rides on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Subject to weather and volunteer availability.
