We went to the James Hall Museum of Transport in the South of Johannesburg last week and the kids had an absolute ball. We learnt all about transport vehicles from the horse and cart to today’s electric vehicles. It was very interesting to see how the technology has evolved in the last 130 years.

Here are a few pictures of what we saw. I took over 500 pictures, so this is just the very tip of the ice berg.
When we arrived, we saw an old wagon outside in the play area. Grampa explained to the kids how it was pulled and showed them what was left of the break.

A tour guide introduced us to the museum. Since we didn’t have a guided tour, he gave us a lot of the information up front and explained what is and is not allowed.
