“Great for under 7's!”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Terrific outing for the younger kids. Older ones may get bored. There are 3 tram cars from different periods and you can board each of them. At set times through out their opening hours. The tram driver takes you on a trip for about a 20 minutes to and from the Royal National Park and/ or in the other direction. There is also picnic tables and grass to sit and have lunch. The museum has numerous train coaches and the kids can explore them. A good photo exhibition lines the walls. Amazing to see what Sydney looked like 50 years ago!

Well with the trip.

“Well worth the visit”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Excellent visit as it was good to see the history of trams not only from Sydney but also from Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and from overseas.
It's ironic that trams are being put back into operation for public transport, they should never have ever been taken out in the first place.
There are no bathroom facilities to have a bath but there are toilets.

“Surprisingly Fun”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I’ve been here quite a few times and have always had a great day. The volunteers are helpful and informative, the tram museum is interesting and the kids always have a ball when they get to climb into the old trams (particularly the prison carriage). They also love waving to all the cars as the tram crosses the highway. It’s a lovely ride down to the national park and you can get out and wander around and catch a different tram back whenever you like.

“Shot Through Like a Bondi Tram................!!!!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

A very well set up Museum with the added bonus of catching one of several running Trams all day. There is the short hop up towards Sutherland then the longer run over the Highway to the old Royal National Park Station with everyone waving at the cars stopped at the crossing. You can combine the trip to the RNP Station with a walk down the Honeymoon Track to Audley , then back up to return to the Museum on a later Tram. The place is open on weekends and other holiday periods and is run by volunteers who do a sterling job keeping the memory of these Trams alive for kids today to experience. The last Tram ran in Sydney in 1961so it's great that over 50 years later it can still be experienced. The Museum building has many different exhibits, not just Trams and great photo montages. The grounds have a large picnic area and historic shelters and it is a good spot for a picnic lunch or afternoon tea !! We went with a group of disabled kids (wheelchairs etc) and they had a ball and we had to get the staff to pretend that the trams were going to bed to get the kids to leave !!
