The Sydney Tramway Museum provides a nostalgic and educational insight into the lifestyle of Sydneysiders during the 100 year period of tramway operation from 1861 to 1961, with trams running, plus restoration works-in-progress, exhibits and photos depicting the development and operation of tramways. The Museum includes not only an extensive collection of Sydney trams from 1896 to 1952, but also trams from Brisbane, Melbourne, Ballarat, San Francisco, Nagasaki, Berlin, Munich and Milan, enabling comparisons between the different tramcar designs. A double-deck tram from Hobart and a Brill-built bogie car of 1902 from the Western Australian gold-mining city of Kalgoorlie still have to be restored. The Museum also houses Sydney's last remaining double-deck trolley-bus. A small bookshop and kiosk is open during the hours of the museum operation, selling a range of books, postcards, souvenirs and light refreshments. Picnic facilities including electric barbecues are available on the grounds.
