Tramway Museum, St Kilda, South Australia


Welcome to the Tramway Museum, St Kilda, South Australia web pages. The Museum is owned and operated by the Australian Electric Transport Museum (SA) Inc, a non-profit voluntary accociation having full accreditation with the History Trust of South Australia.

The Tramway Museum preserves the electric public transport history of Adelaide. We have examples of nearly every type of tram and trolleybus used on the Adelaide system.

There are also extensive displays of photographs, maps and historical information.
