  • Good overview family. After ascending through a clean and well-maintained cable car, you arrive at the terminal station where you can learn about the interesting history of the cable car. You can also enjoy the view, a good coffee or a tasty ice cream.

  • A small free museum at the top of the cable car line in Kelburn. It is interesting that the museum is located within the original winding house. Doesn't take more than 15 minutes to go through it.  more »
  • We got off the cable car and toured the museum. Unfortunately I didn't go downstairs to see the lower level. It is now clear that I missed a lot that I would have found interesting.  more »

  • Good, warm spot. Nice old cable car for kids to play on, history movie, and old bits and pieces. Great to get up out of the city so quickly. Plan to walk around the gardens to to make the most of your time
  • 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.
  • It features a restored old cable car, the old mechanism for the cable car system, facts and history of the cable car and a souvenir/gift shop
  • Nice informative experience but nothing special.
  • Lovely place, my 6 year old son loved it the most
