Welcome to the 
more than just a museum

Over the Christmas New Year Holidays, the Tramway Museum will be open every day from 26 December through to Monday 25 January.

Our vintage Wellington Trams will be running at regular intervals from 11am each day to take you from the McKays Crossing entrance to Queen Elizabeth Park down to Whareroa Beach.

Our Kiosk will also be open for cold drinks, ice creams and nibbles.

Come and visit us and learn how Wellingtonians used to travel in years gone by.
