Hong Kong Trams Station
Traditional Chinese 香港電車文化館

Hong Kong Trams Station (Chinese: 香港電車文化館) is a tram museum in the Peak Galleria, Hong Kong.[1] It is under the management of the Tramric Product & Design Limited. It was opened on 27 October 2013 to celebrate the 110th anniversary of Hong Kong Tramways. With aspirations to ultimately create a transport museum in the future[citation needed], the galleries feature exhibitions on Hong Kong's trams and their counterparts from around the world.

The first tram-themed exhibition gallery in the city, it explores the network's changes and the vehicles' features and components throughout their history. The museum offers lectures, model-making workshops, tram tours, and exhibition gallery talks.

Exhibits

In the museum, a collection of historical tram products are on display, including items such as a money collector from the 1970s, old tram tickets, and iron-made tram models. Visitors can experience a reconstructed tram scene from the 1950s by sitting on an old wooden tram seat.

Tram Souvenirs

To celebrate Hong Kong Tramways' 110th Anniversary, they partnered with Hong Kong Trams Station to produce tram souvenirs and to introduce Hong Kong trams to visitors.
