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 1990's 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 1940's tram ride and immerse yourself in the sounds and voices of old Inveresk, as you travel along. Inside the gallery you can enjoy Launceston's oldest surviving movie footage and experience a whimsical ramble on the big screen, observing how the city has changed since Victorian times.
You may wish to take in 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.
The Museum is adjacent to good parking, cafes and the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery. Open with tram rides on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
