Coronavirus update

The Melbourne Tram Museum shop will be opening from 10am to noon on 28 November, 5 December and 12 December. We have loads of tram-related goodies for sale, and don’t miss our gingerbread Christmas tram biscuits!

Unfortunately the Museum is not yet open for visitors, so you can’t see our trams.

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:

Preserving Melbourne’s tramway heritage

Since 1885, Melbourne has been one of the world’s great tramway cities. Explore the history of trams and the contribution they have made to the place where we live, in the most authentic tramway museum in Australia: the heritage-listed Hawthorn Tram Depot.
