Wll worth a visit

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.

A fantastic living museum of rail and road. Historic steam trains with rides available at times as well as Hobarts trams from an era past. Recommend to everyone

We took the cable car up the long tracks up to the top of the tallest hill that overlooks the city. What a fantastic view from this vantage point !!!

Considering how small Hobart is, it is amazing to see its transport variety and history. This museum covers, rail, tram, bus and fire fighting history with in-depth exhibits. Plan ahead and you may get to see the steam locos in steam on 3rd Saturdays - except December (sigh when I was there) and other ties too - contact the museum... More

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. An excellent day and at $10 adult, is money well spent. Highly recommend.

The volunteers do a wonderful job of trying to preserve local history. Definitely go on a day they have the train rides, because that is so cool. We are adults who visited and thoroughly enjoyed the train ride, but kids especially would get a big thrill from it. Standing at the platform and seeing the steam train pulling up was... More

Never been one for transport items such as trains and trams and similar, but had several hours and came upon the Transport Museum, what an eye opener, and what a wonderful collection of vehicles and stories, never gave a thought about how one got around Tassie, but being the Great Southern State the Australian government money was always the last...

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 though.

Particularly well restored trams and some trains. A short train ride of several hundred meters is sometimes available of a weekend. With all that's available in Hobart you need to be an enthusiast to visit.

We were lucky enough to coincide our visit to the Tasmanian Transport Museum with one of their exhibition days. The old steam train was running! Does not travel far, just up the road a bit, but the children were so excited, very enjoyable. They had the model trains on show also, what wonderful work. So much detail. There are a... More
