The Tramshed on Dylan Thomas Square, in the Marina, is also run by Swansea Museum. Opening times are dependent on volunteer availability. We recommend calling ahead to avoid disappointment. 01792 653763
The Tramshed is open on Wednesdays & Saturdays from 11am to 4pm.
You’ll find memorabilia from the street trams of Swansea and also the world famous Mumbles train that ran around the edge of Swansea Bay from Swansea town centre to Mumbles Pier.
Items of interest include:
- A double-decker Swansea street tram is on display
- A reconstruction of the horse-drawn Mumbles tram of 1804, the first passenger railway service in the world
- The last surviving part of a Mumbles tram from the 1960s which you can climb inside to the top deck.
Admission is free, and the ground floor is wheel chair accessible but the mezzanine and the trams are unfortunately not.
For more information about the world’s first passenger railway, have a look at our Mumbles Train page.
Can you spare a few hours a week?
Swansea Museum is looking for friendly, outgoing, enthusiastic volunteers to join our Tramshed team.
