My heart is in pieces about the steam train not running between George and Knysna anymore due to the safety concerns of the bridge. I decided to go visit the museum to bid fairwell. All I remember about visiting George as a little girl is the train ride we had. Walking through the museum, did not comfort me. I was... More

One of only two fabulous transport museums in South Africa, the Outeniqua Transport Museum houses an amazing collection of different modes of transport, but especially old trains, many of which you will never be able to see anywhere else. A MUST visit for steam enthusiasts, but a wonderland for any adult or child.

Remembering trains as a kid it was amazing to see. Also seeing all the old locomotives and the old cars and silverware used on the trains. Even seeing the old vending machines and the story behind it. Something that really needs to be kept for generations to come.

I had visited years ago and it is certainly a museum worth visiting if you like Railway and Classic cars. The cars are all in tip-top condition and well wothr more time that we... More

The perfect place for a family visit. Very clean and there is enough to see to keep you busy for 2 hours. I would love to see a decent souvenir shop as it is one of the few attractions that George has to offer. Good to see that the trains are kept in a good condition and not just parked... More
