A new exhibition and gallery space will be housed inside the Bristol building that currently houses our Visitor’s Centre.  The new space will encompass a general exhibition space about the Tramway Museum Society of Victoria and it’s history involved with establishing the Tramway Heritage Centre.  There will be a temporary exhibition space that will present exhibitions for a duration of 3 to 6 months to provide an ever-changing and evolving exhibit to the public. This will be followed with a general exhibition space featuring an exhibit about Advertising on Trams and other items.  A new archives room and members space will also be created.  It is anticipated that most features of this space will be open to the public during 2017.  Stay tuned for further updates.


Work is currently slowly progressing in transforming the rear of the Bristol building into our new exhibition space.  With progress being made with installing a partition for our new temporary exhibition space that will house our first Exhibition Series - Capturing a Moment, work can now continue with securing the partition and painting the area that will be utilised.  Along with those works, the display cabinet that is house in the Exhibition Shed will be emptied and moved to the new exhibition space.  All articles will be cleaned and placed on display in the new space.  Stay tuned for more information.
