Outeniqua Transport Museum
Take a trip down memory lane
Take a trip down memory lane and visit the Outeniqua Transport Museum. The museum is porvided by Transnet and exhibits the fascinating history of South African Railway. One can only stand and admire the magnificent Iron Ladies that once dominated the railway lines of Southern Africa.
There is also an excellent selection of privately owned vintage cars on display as well as other exhibitions of interest like the silverware, cutlery and crockery that were once used over the various periods which represent the transport industry. Fascinating memorabilia such as locomotive number plates, makers plates, menus and more hefty items such as fire engines, road transport vehicles, furniture and many other rail related items which will remind you of how as a child, you just loved trains! Care has been taken to include as much accurate detail as possible into the exhibits. One can even climb into a few of the locomotives and it makes for great selfie moments!
The museum is open weekdays from 8am to 4.30pm, on Saturdays and Public Holidays from 8am until 2pm and is closed on Sundays and 25th December. Be sure to allocate enough time to go through the entire museum and you can have lunch at the train carriage restaurant.
