James Hall Museum of Transport

The James Hall Museum of Transport (JHMT) is a thematic land transport museum covering various modes of transport dating back some 400 years and is the largest museum of its kind in South Africa. We have steam driven vehicles, trains, trams and trolley busses, fire fighting vehicles, early bicycles, animal drawn vehicles and cars.

For schools: The Education Dept within JHMT runs programs specifically designed for the OBE system, together with worksheets that can be obtained from the museum prior to their tour. During school holidays we run holiday programs. For specific information or specialised interest group tours contact Peter Hall.

The museum will showcase its valuable transport collection, artefacts and memorabilia through guided museum tours including a curated outdoor exhibition of vintage cars by various motor clubs and private collectors. The event will give vintage owners and clubs to showcase their case in a curated outdoor exhibition of vintage vehicles. This event also sets out to provide a platform for the creative local community to learn about the city’s valuable history and heritage and also sets out to encourage a museum-going culture.

This family fun day will be accompanied by a vintage craft market, live music entertainment, children’s activities and, to keep up with the theme of the day, vintage food trucks will also be selling food and refreshments to visitors.
