Tram Shed

Tram Shed - part of Swansea MuseumThe Tramshed on Dylan Thomas Square, in the Marina, is also run by Swansea Museum and is usually open on bank holidays and special events (please ring the museum to check opening days and times on 01792 653763).

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.
