A huge warehouse full of pristine engines and carriages and artefacts, all of which deserve exploration. We travelled on the Powervan, which departs from the museum several times a day and labours up the Montagu pass. What a brilliant experience! We loved every minute. Thanks to the husband and wife team who drove and gave the commentary. Recommended most highly.

The Outeniqua Transport Museum is an absolute must visit for anyone interested in steam engines, vintage vehicles or history in general. Beautifully laid out, safe and clean. The Powervan offers an opportunity to go up the mountain as well. The Museum is also a perfect venue for functions.

We visited the train museum which the kids found very interesting. The friendly gentleman at the model trains enthralled my 12 year old son who could not stop talking about the model trains for weeks. We then took the power-van trip up the mountain - breathtaking views! A little noisy coming down due to the breaking, but was a worthwhile... More

This was an interesting visit. The old trains were very interesting and the kiosk on the dinning car is a must. You can also see lovely old vintage cars.

This was a great museum. Especially enjoyed the excursion that leaves into the mountains, just gorgeous. The cafe was also delightful. The museum takes you back to an era that was only experienced via television. Early mornings or afternoons are preferable as the building tends to get quite hot in the day.
