Coronavirus update

The Melbourne Tram Museum will be closed until further notice. The Committee of Management has decided that due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it is prudent for the museum to close at this time, to protect the health of its visitors and its volunteers.

The Museum will notify any change of this decision on its website and social media accounts.

We hope to welcome you back to the Museum soon, but until then our website has loads of tram-related content that is always accessible even if the Museum is closed, including:
