The Melbourne Tram Museum showcases the history of trams and the contribution they've made to life in Melbourne since 1885 in the most authentic tramway museum in Australia, the heritage-listed Hawthorn Tram Depot.

The depot was built for the Hawthorn Tramways Trust and opened in 1916 as a three storey building housing offices, amenities, a four road tram shed and the electrical substation that provided traction power to the tramway.

The museum is home to 21 trams ranging from a Melbourne Tramway & Omnibus Company cable tram and trailer to a Yarra Trams Z1 Class #81 which entered service in 1978 and was finally retired in 2006.
