Tram 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.
