The Rail Transport Museum is a must-see for railway and history buffs. It offers tourists and visitors a superb collection of locomotives and railway historical memorabilia that charts the opening up of the western third of the continent. The collection is highly significant as it is the only one in Western Australia that aims to tell the story of all railways across the state. Other collections focus on one aspect or a region.
The Rail Transport Museum at Bassendean is operated by Rail Heritage WA, and further information, including entry fees and opening times, is available on their website.
