Enjoyable short ride in authentic trams
Jan. 2020
We enjoyed our visit and the staff were really helpful. While the track is short - and a loop would be better - it was a good ride and we traveled on 3 different trams.
Families and all ages would enjoy this!

We have lived about 3 km from this place for 20 years and never visited. The volunteers clearly love their trams, plenty of stories, they love a chat and good to see the kids getting excited about a ride on the trams. Good way to spend a hour or so.

My third visit and still love it.

This museum is fantastic. Well maintained gardens, lots of interesting information on how Brisbane was serviced by these amazing trams. They've really captured the tram era which ended in 1969. I went along to the 50th anniversary of the tramway closure. It was well organised. Close to ferny Grove train station. Five minute walk from the train. I suggest catching trains from the city and commuting if you're not familiar with the area. The tram rides are fun. You go through different models in rotation so it's always interesting plus there is information given by volunteers during the ride. Great for kids too.

Fun afternoon experience
Sep. 2018 • Solo
This is a small but very enjoyable attraction. There is a little display briefly outlining the history of trams in Brisbane to look at while you buy your ticket for the main reason to visit - continuous tram rides. Different historic trams are used throughout the afternoon to whisk visitors on short rides. There are trams from each era from the 1800s to the last model used before the tram system closed. To ride on all the trams takes about 1 1/2 to 2hrs but it is more enjoyable than it sounds. it is good value for $14 per adult. Highly recommended.

Great afternoon activity
Jul. 2018 • Family
If you're interested in Brisbane history, and rail, trains and trams generally, then the Brisbane Tramway Museum is a must do activity. The volunteers at the Brisbane Tramway Museum are extremely knowledgeable and have been meticulous in bringing several of Brisbane's historic trams back to life - the oldest being from the early 1900s. Visitors can ride each of the trams and learn about their history. In addition to the trams there are several other interesting historical Brisbane transport displays.

Eventually I'd like to see the tram track extended to a full circuit and perhaps some more picnic and BBQ facilities added.

All in all a great afternoon out.

Interesting Afternoon
Jan. 2018 • Couples
Anyone who grew up in Brisbane during the era of trams will love this place. It will bring back memories of bygone days. The guides are very knowledgeable about the trams. You get to travel on six different trams dating from the earliest, built in 1900, to the last ones to run in the 60's. It's only open Sunday afternoons, but is a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.

A real gem of a place
Nov. 2017 • Family
This museum is dedicated to extensive tram system that existed in Brisbane until the early 1960's. There is a reasonable number of working trams running on a quarter mile of track and a larger number of vehicles undergoing work. It is run by very helpful and friendly volunteers.

There are many exhibits, photographs, news cuttings and films about the history of the tramway system and its unfortunate demise.

It is only open on a Sunday and really deserves more support from the local authorities.

A great day out for everyone.
