Whether single, a couple or a family, a visit to Outeniqua Transport Museum will be worth the while. In a fast changing life it is a good experience to see the "monsters" of days gone by. Ample parking.

You get so much more than what you pay for! Interesting museum, so much to look at! From classic cars-trains to model planes. A must visit.

Visited the museum with the idea of taking photos - good collection of vintage cars and interesting collection of old steam locomotives and memorabilia. A good option for a rainy day.
