The museum provides a nostalgic and educational insight, preserving examples of public transportation in Sydney during the period of tramway operation from 1861 to 1961, with trams operating, plus restoration works-in-progress, exhibits and photos depicting their development and operation.
Trams carry passengers towards Sutherland (one kilometre) and to The Royal National Park along the former railway line (two kilometres). From the latter terminus, walks can be taken to Bungoona Lookout (one kilometre), to Audley (two kilometres) and elsewhere in R.N.P.
Check the website for further details.
The Museum houses an extensive collection of Sydney trams from 1896 to 1952, including the unique prison tram, plus trams from Brisbane, Melbourne, Ballarat, Adelaide, San Francisco, Nagasaki, Berlin, Munich and Milan, enabling comparisons between the different tramcar designs.
The museum also houses Sydney's last remaining double-deck trolley bus. Includes Sydney tram 29, restored to original condition, as would have appeared in George Street from 1899.
The small bookshop sells a range of books, postcards, and souvenirs; the kiosk sells light refreshments.
