“Good collection of historic steam engines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

I spent an hour or so wandering round on a recent trip along the Garden Route.

Very much enjoyed seeing the preserved steam loco's, but was disappointed that there was little in the way of explanation and story of South African steam. Still, for 20R, it was a worthwhile visit, it's a very good collection, and is enhanced by sections on cars and aeroplanes too.

“This is an astonishingly good attraction and so little known”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

It is most unexpected to find such a well-appointed transport museum in a place such as George. The facilities are first class. Most of the trains are under one roof and in top condition. Well worth a visit.
