Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Tramway Museum is well worth a visit. The ticket includes riding all the trams that are running that afternoon. The volunteer staff have a lot of interesting information and stories to tell about the history of the tram service and different trams. Although it was a very hot day, there was a lovely breeze through the carriages. Our four grandchildren (ages between 4 and 10) really enjoyed themselves, especially the rides.

This is a little gem in the northwest of Brisbane. If you have a spare 90 minutes or so and $16 per adult and $9 per child, give it a visit. The tram rides are quite relaxing, and the volunteers know their stuff. The kids will love it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
