  • Launceston Tram Museum

Launceston Tramway Musuem preserves the heritage of the Launceston Municipal Tramways, which was responsible for operating the city’s tram fleet between 1911 and 1952.

At the Museum, a guide will meet you and outline the activities available.  A tram ride is usually first on the program, involving a double barreled ride on restored Tram 29 including a soundscape run featuring sound effects and voices from the past.

Returning to the Display Gallery, the guide will then introduce you to the history and heritage of the tramway service, by way of displays, movie footage, stories and fascinating items in the Museum’s collection, as well as a large screen presentation on how Launceston has changed since Victorian times.

A highlight of your visit will be a guided tour of the Museum Workshop where visitors can see the restoration and rebuilding program.  At present, the Workshop houses Launceston’s first tram, No 1 as well as Tram 26. On Saturdays, when the Workshop is in operation, visitors also have the opportunity to talk with some of the volunteers involved.
