Melbourne Tram Museum @ Hawthorn Depot
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.
The museum is home to 21 fully-restored trams including:
a ‘toast-rack’ bodied V-class from 1906 – one of the first electrified trams in Melbourne
several versions of the iconic Melbourne W-class trams
the experimental X-class tram designed for lightly patronised routes
the prototype of the Z-class which marked the steady modernisation of the fleet when it was introduced in 1975.
Encounter a part of the history of Melbourne at a unique heritage location.
The Melbourne Tram Museum @ Hawthorn Depot has an extensive range of tramway DVDs, books and other tramway items for sale. Visit our shop during open days.
