100% Volunteer Based Launceston Tramway Museum

Located at historic Inveresk, next door to the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery and on the site of the original Invermay Road Tram Depot, the Launceston Tramway Museum 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. Live part of Tasmania’s tramway past by taking a 1940’s tram ride at the Launceston Tramway Museum.

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

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, a whimsical ramble on the big screen – Launceston’s oldest surviving film footage, and experience how the City changed since the Victorian times.

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 which had become a chook house. Open with tram rides on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
