  • Great place to take the kids to learn. Our little ones loved the interactive displays. Going through the tram museum. There were a little disappointed the tram was not running the day they went. But it does give another reason to go back. Seems to have become a regular activity to attend in the school holidays
  • Have seen parts of the museum. Very good. More to see. This time for the spider display. Glad I am not scared of them. Unlike a couple of people I know.
  • Took the kids here to see Spider expo... they enjoyed it and loved looking around the rest of the Museum. There was plenty for them to look at and lots of interactive stuff to explore! I liked the rail stuff and the old history of the site preserved like a time capsule out the back :)
  • Well worth a visit. But the food shop is cool in temperature I guess because its inside but on either side of a thorough fair to the rest of the museum. Had good food n friendly
  • Free family fun and activities good for school holidays. We spent 2hr there with 4kids no problem. Coffee and cafe great, sit inside a tram carriage.
