  • Great historic trip. Gives you an excellent run down of the history of transportation, as well as some neat models to view and explore. The bus/tram hall allows you to explore 3 models, a double decker tram, a double decker and a mobile library bus. Some amazing history. Donations are welcome, there is no entrance fee. *would highly suggest an automotive company to sponsor this important transport museum, to improve the quality and upkeep*
  • This is an Awsum little gem in the middle of Jozy and a must visit for anyone interested in the rich history of motor vehicles and motorbikes. The staff are friendly and helpful providing insight into the vehicles where they can. Just remember to give a donation when you visit because this is one place that shouldn't run into disrepair and should be kept for generations to come.
  • Went from the Joburg Hop in Hop out bus. Loved this place and tour. They have a very good collection of antique old transport vehicles, including cars, buses, trucks, horse carts etc etc. Also couple of futuristic electric cars too.
  • Such a beautiful reminder of where we came from wrt transportation. Just a small while ago there was nothing of what we take for granted every day
  • Quite big and very interesting museum for kids and adults. So far my best museum experience in Joburg.
