The Melbourne Steam Traction Engine Club operates a vintage engine museum set in six hectares of parkland in the south eastern suburb of Scoresby. In all, there are several hundred engines and related exhibits housed in a number of exhibition sheds around the grounds.

Steam exhibits include traction engines, among them a pair of massive Fowler Z7 steam ploughing engines, steam rollers, portable engines and a large and varied collection of industrial and marine stationary steam engines and pumps.

There is a period workshop and a diesel engine section. You are unlikely to see a comparable display of large diesel generators elsewhere. There are displays of tractors, agricultural equipment and early road working and earth moving machinery and a working blacksmith shed.

An added attraction for the kids is the miniature railway which operates every Sunday.

The museum is open for static display each weekend but most of the engines are in running order and on the last Sunday of the month a selection can be seen in operation. The grounds are attractively laid out with a lake, barbecues and shady picnic areas. The one kilometre miniature railway track circuits the grounds.

Entry by donation.
