Revolutions Transport Museum

West Coast Australia

The main museum in Whiteman Park, Revolutions has interactive exhibits on the history of land transport across WA: horse-drawn wagons, camel trains, locomotives, trams, bicycles and road vehicles. The highlight is surely the immaculate 1962 EJ Holden, with vintage radio tracks blaring and that old vinyl-seat aroma. Look for the handsome triple-gabled brick building near the rail lines.
