A place for transport enthusiasts. Old buses and trains take you back to times long gone. A great place for a day trip with family.

A great way to spend a few hours in Hobart. The entry fee of $10 is great value for what they have done at the museum.

This is a must see sight for anyone into trains, trams and fire trucks. Visitors have full access to workshops with an opportunity to clamber over trains and carriages. A steam train undertakes short trips and there are plenty of enthusiastic staff to answer questions....More
