  • I loved it here! I was taken aback by how cheap it was to enter to it was great. I entered some of the carriages and for a while felt like I had returned to the passed.
  • The thrill of seeing old locomotives 🚂, not in a movie but physically is inexplicable! Getting a ride is exciting! A rich history of the Zambia Sawmills Limited, the Mulobezi rail road and how the African and white segregation was on the railway. The museum also is house to the Jewish museum. Friendly guides and staff. Enjoy and have fun visiting!
