The Tramway Museum is a community-based organisation that works to restore and revive the old trams that once roamed Launceston Tasmania. With over 50 volunteers actively working to recapture our exciting history, there are many opportunities to journey through Tasmania’s tramway past; including fascinating tales of when trams were no longer trams, Launceston’s oldest surviving movie footage, an interactive children’s tram and a sneak peek at the ongoing projects in the original workshop of Launceston Municipal Tramways. 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.
