The Wellington Cable Car Museum is housed in the original winding house that was used from 1902 to 1978. The museum is set on two levels and features the original winding mechanism and two of the original cable cars that operated in the early 1900s as well as one of the red cable cars that were used on the line from the 1950s to the 1970s.

The museum also has displays about the history of Wellington’s cable car system as well as exhibits explaining how cable cars work.

A fun activity at the museum is dressing in period costume to have your photo taken with one of the original cable cars.

The Cable Car Museum is located at the Kelburn terminus of the Wellington cable car.
