This museum is located within the heart of Whiteman Park, adjacent to the Bennett Brook Railway, and a perfect pitstop if you're enjoying a day out in this luscious reserve. The museum is free to enter but a gold coin donation is appreciated. I've been to this museum a number of times and it is just an absolute delight to visit and a real find for any transport lovers out there. Kids will adore the interactive elements of many exhibits, whilst adults will love a look at the transports of yesteryear.
To set the scene, start off your trip to the museum by visiting the theatrette to watch a really enjoyable and educational movie all about the history of land transport in WA. To keep kids entertained, the movie feature is narrated by the comical character, Rev, and whether you are young or old, there's some amazing facts and footage of how transport has evolved over the years. From camels, to cars this movie covers all the changes the wonderful state of WA has witnessed. The movie sets the tone for your visit to the museum and once you step out of the theatrette, you are free to explore the exhibits that showcase the changes that have happened in land transport history in Australia.
Fun Fact: This is the WA's only land transport museum.
There is a great array of transport exhibits to have a look at, with many featuring interactive elements, including being able to climb onboard some of the modes of transport. Kids will love being able to go in the vintage car and have a pretend drive, turning the key and listening to the radio, in addition to being able to play driver on the old bus and passenger in the train carriages.
You can go in and around a lot of the transport on show
Whilst many of the displays lend themselves well to the youngest of museum visitors, kids, specifically, will enjoy the transport themed play area where they can assemble trains, play with cars and trucks and complete transport puzzles. Additionally, out in the foyer there are a number of craft tables each with different crafts and colouring in stations. This helps to make the Revolutions Museum a complete family experience. If you know of a rainy day coming up, this is a great place to head to.
