교통수단에 대해 관심이 많은 편이라 버스 박물관을 구경하게 되니 참 좋았습니다. 아기자기한 버스가 많아서 아이들이 구경하기에도 좋아요. more »I'm very interested in transportation, so it was great to see the bus museum. It's a great place to see the kids.
We had a great time here! We caught the vintage bus from QVB Stand D to the front door of the museum. They run roughly every 30 minutes. The museum is not huge but there's enough to see to fill a couple of hours and $15 admission is quite reasonable, especially given the return trip to QVB on a vintage bus. Keep up the great work!
Lots of heritage busses that you can look around plus rides into Sydney. The volunteers know lots about the busses in the collection and have some great stories. This is a really nice way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday.
