The Tasmanian Transport Museum Society was formed in 1962 and has since established a extensive transport museum in the Hobart suburb of Glenorchy.

The museum is open on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, between 1:00 pm and 4:30 pm. Trains operate on the first and third Sundays of the month. Occasional main line trips are also operated.

The rollingstock collection includes 10 locomotives, 7 carriages, 10 wagons and 3 railmotors. The museum also houses a collection of buses, trolley buses and trams, as well as the restored New Town station building.
