The Cable Car Museum 

The Museum is located in the original winding house for the cable car system which operated from 1902 until 1978.  When new technology rendered the winding house redundant, the Museum was born.  Here you’ll find the original winding mechanism – still in working order – and two of the three grip cars which operated on the line.

 

Set over two floors, the Museum offers the chance to sit aboard one of the ‘relentless red rattlers’, see the original winding gear and watch films about the development of Wellington’s most iconic transport system.
