  • This is an interesting small museum at the top of the cable car. It is free entry. There are lots of interesting old photos and some short films to watch as well. Also a souvenir shop if you are...

  • Has some good information on the cable car and its importance to the Wellington/Kelburn area. An old car is inside and you can climb on it and get a feel for what the original rides must have been like. Lots of good info and a nice video about the street cars of New Zealand.
  • Heaps of nformation and history on how the Wellington cable cars came about in the early 1900's. Really interesting. Glad they've decided to convert this old building into a museum.
