The museum was brilliant, definitely worth a visit. They have a large number of trams, ranging from the very earliest cable trams all the way through to ones retired in the early 2000s. The staff are friendly and informative, and the entire experience is just a gold coin donation! Absolutely packed full of history, you can climb on board every single one, play with the bells, sit at the controls and change the destination dials. All housed within the old Hawthorn Tram depot, which is a gorgeous building. I would highly recommend it for anyone who loves Melbourne’s history or a good piece of engineering, as well as for families looking for somewhere to take their kids. Unfortunately it is only open every second Saturday, so make sure you check their website before you go, but I’ll definitely be going back, there was too much to learn all in one day!
Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Went to a book launch. Met and chatted to some very interesting people. Loved checking out the beautiful historic trams.
