  • We arrived at the top of the cable car on a cold and rainy day, and the museum was a welcome respite from the cold. It is quite an interesting exhibit, and takes you through the origins and changes that the Cable car has gone through. There are also a couple of restored cable cars from the previous generation, one of which you can also get on to take photos. If you're here, it's a nice diversion before exploring the rest of the botanic gardens.
  • Nice informative experience but nothing special.
  • Lovely place, my 6 year old son loved it the most
  • A lovely place to take visitors also a shop in the museum also, really well laid out & worth seeing
  • Cool views of Wellington city
