North Williamstown Railway Museum

North Williamstown Railway Museum is home to some of the country’s oldest locomotive engines and is located just 15 minutes south-west of Melbourne.

With the rapid disappearance of steam engines, a number of train enthusiasts floated the idea of preserving the engines in a railway museum, and that was how North Williamstown Railway Museum began.

North Williamstown Railway Museum, Opening Hours & Entry Price

The museum first opened its doors in 1962 and has since grown and continues to attract visitors from across the country. Today, the museum houses steam, early diesel and electric locomotives which are all on display.

In addition to the display of these trains, the museum also has steam cranes, passenger carriages and various freight wagons available for viewing. There are photographic displays that give you a glimpse into the beautiful world of trains, coupled with a signal box and a host of railway equipment.

Group and school booking are welcome and can be arranged for any day of the week. Just contact the North Williamstown Rainway Museum to make a booking.

You can get to the museum easily via public transport. Catch a Williamstown train from Melbourne and alight at North Williamstown station. The museum is just a short 10 minute walk along Champion Road.
