“A Must For Transport Enthusiasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This museum must be one of the most tenacious and loved museums in the area. I have never seen the exhibits dirty or neglected. From wagons to buses to bicycles and a bunch of delightful vehicles in between. What a pity there is too little money to restore and display more. If you or the little ones love all things with wheels here is a perfect opportunity for a history lesson full of fun, the kids won't realise they are learning!

“If are really into transportation....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The red bus takes you here. But that's the only reason to go. It's literally a few old cars, some railway stuff, etc. if your on the red bus tour you can do this in conjunction with mini world. But only go if you are really interested cause you will be bored

“A history of Johannesburg in transport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is a must for any motoring enthusiast. There is a great variety of vehicles, including trams,trolley buses and the odd fire engine. A superb collection of vintage and veteran motorcars and motorcycles.

“Relive the era of forgotten transport.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

The condition of vehicles on display were in a good condition, it evoked many comments by older folk who could recall good memories of their era, the younger folk still need to experience the forgotten modes of transport.

“TRANSPORT HISTORY IN SOUTH AFRICA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

A phenomenal cross section of transport in Johannesburg over the last hundred plus years which will appeal to those with a historical or technological or mechanical bent.
Space pretty tight and displays really packed in.
History from horse drawn to steam to petrol and diesel.
No cafetaria.
Nearby Santarama miniature city of johannesburg .
Part of Wemmer Park complex.
Guarded Parking safe.
