The tram seen decimating Coronation Street during the ITV1 soap's 50th anniversary week is set to become a museum exhibit next year.
It is hoped a section of the vehicle will be displayed at Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry.
"We were approached a couple of weeks back as to whether we would like to have the tram," museum director Tony Hill told the Manchester Evening News.
"As yet we have not finalised a delivery date," added Mr Hill.
An audience of 13 million tuned in to watch the specially built tram plummet off a viaduct following a gas explosion on 6 December.
Located close to the Granada Studios where Coronation Street is filmed, the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) is nearing the end of a £9 million refurbishment.
Earlier this month ITV announced filming will move from the Granada complex to Trafford Wharf, near Salford Quays, in 2013.
