What the Museum offers for group charter visits

A charter visit to the Tramway Museum offers your school or community group the chance to visit on a day, or at a time when the Museum is not usually open.

It also means that you would normally receive the undivided attention of our staff in a structured program for a 2 hour period.

We offer the experience of a tram ride on a historic vehicle and a guided tour of displays at the Museum site.

Also available if required are souvenirs and refreshments.

Group Charter Visits cost $8.00 per person ($9 if tea/coffee required) – minimum charge is $160

What the Museum offers school groups

We welcome school group visits as we can demonstrate an important part of Adelaide’s transport history.

Our guided tour offers a commentary describing changing living conditions, the pace of life, travel patterns and community attitudes reflected in the 130 years of tramway operation in Adelaide.

How much time do we need?
We recommend 2 hours for a visit to allow for an introduction, tram ride, a tour of displays, toilet break, recess break.

How much will it cost?
$6.00 per student, teachers/supervisors free.
Minimum charge $150.00 (the equivalent of 25 children).

How many children can visit?
We can accommodate up to 60 people in a tramcar.
We like to work with groups of about 10 children. It would be useful for you to have these groups planned before your arrival.

When can we visit?
Any weekdays during school term. Suitable arrival times are 10.00 am or 1.30 pm, but times can be negotiated.
Vacation Care groups can come to any week-day of school holidays, but we prefer Wednesday mornings.

What about safety?
Good supervision is necessary on your part as children may be riding on open-sided trams.
We urge you to prepare children for their visit in terms of safety, behaviour and listening carefully to their guides.
We ask that children walk (not run) on our site.
