The Tramway Museum Society

The Tramway Museum Society (TMS) is a group of like -minded people who are interested in the preservation of trams and the promotion of the tramway history to the public, not so that we can display static exhibits or demonstrate the running of trams in a period environment, but because trams at one time were the principal, if not the only, form of urban transport and no-one else appeared to be saving any for posterity.

The Society was founded in 1955, and after several years of hard work, its members had converted a disused quarry, located to the north of the village of Crich in Derbyshire, on the edge of the Peak District, into the fledgling Crich Tramway Museum.  The Society became a registered charity in 1962, and the Crich Tramway Museum expanded and grew its collection, eventually becoming the National Tramway Museum in 1980.

Membership of the Tramway Museum Society is open to anyone who wants to become part of the whole experience.  Even if you’re not a tram enthusiast, there will be a role you can play in helping us.  The museum is owned by the TMS and around half of those who keep things going are volunteers.  We are always looking for helpers of all ages.  We have found that youngsters who have never seen a  tram in its original setting are finding the Museum the basis of a new, fascinating and rewarding hobby.

The Society has its own dedicated website where there is an expanding member only area, which gives access to a variety of Society documents which are not available to the public.  If you would like more information about the TMS and how you can become a member, please click here: https://tramwaymuseumsociety.co.uk
