The comprehensive collection of trains, trams, buses and carriages is a sight to behold. Lovingly restored and displayed around a genuine old train station just a few kilometres from the CBD. The highlights for me were the double decker tram and the enormous steam engines....More

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.

Static collection of buses, trams, steam engines and carriages. Quite interesting. Some exhibits had signs on them saying"Undergoing Restoration" but appears not much happening. It was a Sunday so a ride in a diesel rail motor coach was available. Only went a few hundred metres...More
