  • We visited on a rainy day and it was well worth it. Entrance fee was R20pp. There's allot of really well kept trains to see amongst other things. The kids loved it, especially the model trains!
  • Absolutely stunning, so much to see. Well done to SARL for preserving history. A must see for the whole family. Place was clean and tidy, just wished the mannequins in the train were better preserved at least make the decor like the food they eating look more realistic.
  • So much to look at. A well laid out museum. We enjoyed the Outeniqua Power van trip which must be booked ahead of the time.
  • Enter a world into the past! A great and unique experience for the whole family. A lot of great South African history, all under one roof.
  • Great history of SA train, railway, transport. Enjoyable for children and adults. well maintained, huge museum. highly recommend for visiting.
