We were disappointed that we could not go on the train ride along the 7 passes, because they were fully booked the entire week of our stay.

Wow! What an amazing experience. So much to see. Really is a trip back in history. Free entrance but but happy to give a donation.
So sad that the Outeniqua Choo Choo train is not running anymore as this would really add to the whole experience.

Online shows its open on a Saturday. When we arrived it was just like mmmm sorry we are closed. Very bad experience for the first time in George wouldn't recommend it. We were told at the gate aswell that they are closed on Sunday and public holiday, then why are you closed on a Saturday! So disappointing.

Pleasantly surprised at how well the museum was looked after. Clean, neat and a very enjoyable experience for the whole family. Please try to support them by giving a donation if you can. When we visited, entry was free.

What a well kept museum. It was great to see the old trains and able to climb on some of them. Wanted to relive my childhood dreams and see the old toilets but this we could not do.

We really enjoyed looking at all the old forms of transport in this museum. The old cars were my one son's favorite. He counted that one person owned 25 of them! There could be better signage inside with more details of each item. But overall we really enjoyed walking around and stayed longer than expected.
