How to get there
The Melbourne Tram Museum @ Hawthorn Depot is located at 8 Wallen Road Hawthorn, Victoria. Use the embedded Google Map at the bottom of this page to obtain detailed directions; the museum location is highlighted with an 'A'. The Melway reference for the museum location is Map 45, B12.
Please note that car parking spaces at the depot are very limited, so you may need to park some distance away and walk, if using your own vehicle.

A short walk from the tram stop down Wallen Road will bring you to the museum entrance. For timetable details, or public transport directions, Public Transport Victoria | 1800 800 007.
