The Launceston Tramway Museum restores and revives trams from days gone by, and tells the stories of Launceston’s trams that ran from 1911 to 1952. Those running are beautifully restored and those under restoration can be viewed from the museum’s heritage workshop. Guests can ride on the ‘double bogie’ Tram 29, and be sure to check out the tram that was once a chook shed! The museum is packed with adventure, complete with a 1940s tram ride and conductors ready to stub your ticket.
The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm and is closed on public holidays. Group bookings, special occasion photos and performance art are available, as well as a free Tiger Bus from the city. There is plenty of parking and Seniors Cards are welcome.
Adults $5, children six to 14 years $2, and carers and children under six free.
